CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness - This verse is literally taken from 1 Chronicles 16:29-30. The margin here is, "in the glorious sanctuary." The Septuagint, ἐν αὐλῇ ἁγίᾳ en aulē hagia - "in his holy court." So the Latin Vulgate. On the meanings of the expression, see the notes at Psalm 29:2.
Fear before him, all the earth - All lands; all people. The word rendered "fear" means properly to writhe, to twist, to be in pain; and then, to tremble, to quake, to be afraid. The word "tremble" would perhaps best express the idea here. It is that solemn awe produced by the sense of the divine presence and majesty which causes trembling. It denotes profound reverence for God.

27. Therefore go on, Saints of God, boys and girls, males and females, unmarried men, and women; go on and persevere unto the end. Praise more sweetly the Lord, Whom ye think on more richly: hope more happily in Him, Whom ye serve more instantly: love more ardently Him, whom ye please more attentively. With loins girded, and lamps burning, wait for the Lord, when He cometh from the marriage.  Ye shall bring unto the marriage of the Lamb a new song, which ye shall sing on your harps. Not surely …

2 Chronicles 20:21
When he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who sang to the LORD and those who praised Him in holy attire, as they went out before the army and said, "Give thanks to the LORD, for His lovingkindness is everlasting."

Let all the earth fear the LORD; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
Your testimonies are fully confirmed; Holiness befits Your house, O LORD, forevermore.
Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.
His lightnings lit up the world; The earth saw and trembled.
