CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
But I am like a green olive-tree in the house of God - I shall be in the house of God, full of spiritual vigor, bringing forth evergreen leaves and annual fruit, as the olive does when planted in a proper soil and good situation. It does not mean that there were olive-trees planted in God's house; but he was in God's house, as the olive was in its proper place and soil.

As the olive is ever green, so shall I flourish in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
