Psalm 116:19 Parallel
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

In the courts of the Lord's house - See the notes at Psalm 65:4. Compare Psalm 84:2; Psalm 92:13; Psalm 96:8; Psalm 100:4; Psalm 135:2.

In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem - Where the tabernacle, and afterward the temple, was reared.

Praise ye the Lord - Hallelujah. A call on others to join in the praise of God. The psalmist felt his own heart drawn to the service of praise by all the mercies of God; he desired, as an expression of his own feelings, that others should unite with him in that sacred exercise. When our own hearts are filled with gratitude, we wish that all others may partake of the same feeling.

The Puritan Innovations

Of course there were some who, while grateful for the reforms which had been effected, could ill suppress their conviction that the hands of the Reformers had been stayed too soon. These, however, in England at least, were not a numerous body; and if no influence from without had been brought to bear upon them, they would probably have
