Clothed with righteousness.--The original is "salvation," as below in Psalm 132:16, though the Hebrew word is slightly varied. This variation, however, is an almost positive proof that the psalmist, not the chronicler, is adopting words for his own purpose.
Possibly the priestly garments are mentioned, not only as symbolic of righteousness, but also as investing whoever possessed them, with supremacy political as well as religious. This is rendered more probable by the express mention of the diadem below (Psalm 132:18, see Note). "Whoever had these, the priestly paraphernalia, in his possession, had virtually the appointment to the office (high priest)" (Stanley, J. C. iii. 353). But if so, the Vulgate of the verse, in the form it has passed from the Breviary into Anglican worship, has amply recovered for the verse its larger and deeper spiritual intention: "Endue Thy ministers with righteousness, and make Thy chosen people joyful."
Saints--chasidim. Here very possibly technical of the party so called in the Maccabaean period. (See Note, Psalm 16:10.)Verse 9. - Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness. In 2 Chronicles the expression used is "with salvation" - salvation being the effect, whereof "righteousness" is the cause. And let thy saints shout for joy. 2 Chronicles has, "rejoice in goodness," i.e. rejoice in God's goodness to them. There is no other sufficient reason for great joy.
