Psalm 100

All Lands Summoned to Praise God

A Psalm of thanksgiving.

1

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.

2

Worship the Lord with gladness;

come into his presence with singing.

 

3

Know that the Lord is God.

It is he that made us, and we are his;

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

 

4

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

and his courts with praise.

Give thanks to him, bless his name.

 

5

For the Lord is good;

his steadfast love endures forever,

and his faithfulness to all generations.

Ps 100:1-5. As closing this series (see on Ps 93:1), this Psalm is a general call on all the earth to render exalted praise to God, the creator, preserver, and benefactor of men.

1, 2. With thankful praise, unite service as the subjects of a king (Ps 2:11, 12).

3. To the obligations of a creature and subject is added that of a beneficiary (Ps 95:7).

4. Join joyfully in His public worship. The terms are, of course, figurative (compare Ps 84:2; 92:13; Isa 66:23).

Enter—or, "Come with solemnity" (Ps 95:6).

5. The reason: God's eternal mercy and truth (Ps 25:8; 89:7).
