Psalm 97:1 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Call to the families of the peoples to worship God, the One, living, and glorious God. הבוּ is repeated three times here as Psalm 29:1-11, of which the whole strophe is an echo. Isaiah (ch. 60) sees them coming in with the gifts which they are admonished to bring with them into the courts of Jahve (in Chr. only: לפניו). Instead of בּהדרת קדשׁ here and in the chronicler, the lxx brings the courts (חצרת) in once more; but the dependence of the strophe upon Psalm 29:1-11 furnishes a guarantee for the "holy attire," similar to the wedding garment in the New Testament parable. Instead of מפּניו, Psalm 96:9, the chronicler has מלּפניו, just as he also alternates with both forms, 2 Chronicles 32:7, cf. 1 Chronicles 19:18.
