Psalms 132:16

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

I will also clothe her priests with salvation - See the notes at Psalm 132:9, where - instead of the word which in 2 Chronicles 6:41, as here, is “salvation,” we find the word “righteousness.” The promise here corresponds to the prayer in Psalm 132:9. It is a reason why God should interpose. What they prayed for Psalm 132:9, had been expressly promised, and that promise is now urged as a plea why the prayer should be granted.

And her saints shall shout aloud for joy - See Psalm 132:9. In 2 Chronicles 6:41 the prayer is, “And let thy saints rejoice in goodness.” The sense is not materially varied. The Hebrew is, “And let thy saints rejoicing rejoice;” that is, let them shout, shout; let them be full of joy.
