Psalm 68:24 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
They have seen thy goings, O God - That is, the lookers on in the solemn procession referred to in Psalm 68:25; or, in other words, Thy goings have been attended by pomp and magnificence, and have been witnessed by multitudes.

And by an emphasis of interest his,

Book iii. The Ascent: from the River Jordan to the Mount of Transfiguration.
Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory.
Your way, O God, is holy; What god is great like our God?
"The LORD will surely save me; So we will play my songs on stringed instruments All the days of our life at the house of the LORD."
