Psalm 76:11 Parallel
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

vow, and pay unto the Lord your God - That is, Pay your vows, or sacredly observe them. On the word "vow," see the notes at Psalm 22:25. Compare Psalm 50:14; Psalm 56:12; Psalm 66:13. The word refers to a voluntary promise made to God.

Let all that be round about him - All that worship him, or that profess to honor him.

Bring presents - Bring gifts or offerings; things expressive of gratitude and homage. See the notes at Psalm 45:12. Compare Isaiah 16:1, note; Isaiah 18:7, note; Isaiah 60:5, note.

Unto him that ought to be feared - Margin, "to fear." The meaning would be well expressed by the word dread; "to the Dread One." It was not to inspire fear that the presents were to be brought; but they were to be brought to One who had shown that he was the proper object of dread or reverence.

Beginning at Jerusalem
The whole verse runs thus: "And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem." The words were spoken by Christ, after he rose from the dead, and they are here rehearsed after an historical manner, but do contain in them a formal commission, with a special clause therein. The commission is, as you see, for the preaching of the gospel, and is very distinctly inserted in the holy record by Matthew and Mark. "Go teach all nations,"
