Psalms 24:6

_ _ Jacob — By “Jacob,” we may understand God’s people (compare Isaiah 43:22; Isaiah 44:2, etc.), corresponding to “the generation,” as if he had said, “those who seek Thy face are Thy chosen people.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 24:3-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 24:6

The generation — The true progeny which God regards. Face — His grace and favour, which is often called God's face.
