192 is the gematria of the phrase בכל מכל כל, representing of the blessings that Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaakov enjoyed - "with all" (Gen. 24:1), "from all" (ibid. 27:33), and "all" (ibid. 33:11).

It is also the combined gematria of four names of Hashem that make up the complete configuration of sefiros in Atzilus: י"ה = 15, אלקים = 86, הוי"ה = 26, אדנ"י = 65.

(Chasam Sofer to Bava Basra 17a)
