Psalm 99:9 Parallel
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Exalt the Lord our God - See the notes at Psalm 99:5.

And worship at his holy hill - In Psalm 99:5, this is, "at his footstool." The "holy hill" refers to Zion, as the seat of the national worship.

For the Lord our God is holy - See Psalm 99:5. This appropriately closes the psalm, by a distinct and solemn statement that the fact that Yahweh is a holy God is a reason for worshipping him. This is at all times the highest reason for adoration and praise.

It is the speech of the soul face to face with God. Its words are as simple and unaffected as human words can be, for it is the genius
