CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Be also exalteth the horn - Raises to power and authority his people.
The praise - Jehovah is the subject of the praise of all his saints.

O what a hymn of praise is here! It is a universal chorus! All created nature have a share, and all perform their respective parts.
All intelligent beings are especially called to praise him who made them in his love, and sustains them by his beneficence.

Jesus is thy sacrificial offering; Jesus is thy Mediator. He has taken thy humanity, and placed it on the throne! He creates all things new; and faith in his blood will bring thee to his glory! Amen! hallelujah!

It is little else that the psalmist speaking in English instead of Hebrew verse.
