Psalm 150

Praise for God’s Surpassing Greatness

1

Praise the Lord!

Praise God in his sanctuary;

praise him in his mighty firmament!

2

Praise him for his mighty deeds;

praise him according to his surpassing greatness!

 

3

Praise him with trumpet sound;

praise him with lute and harp!

4

Praise him with tambourine and dance;

praise him with strings and pipe!

5

Praise him with clanging cymbals;

praise him with loud clashing cymbals!

6

Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord!

Ps 150:1-6. This is a suitable doxology for the whole book, reciting the "place, theme, mode, and extent of God's high praise."

1. in his sanctuary—on earth.

firmament of his power—which illustrates His power.

2. mighty acts—(Ps 145:4).

excellent greatness—or, abundance of greatness.

3, 4. trumpet—used to call religious assemblies;

4. organs—or pipe, a wind instrument, and the others were used in worship.

5. cymbals—suited to loud praise (Ne 12:27).

6. Living voices shall take up the failing sounds of dead instruments, and as they cease on earth, those of intelligent ransomed spirits and holy angels, as with the sound of mighty thunders, will prolong eternally the praise, saying: "Alleluia! Salvation, and Glory, and Honor, and Power, unto the Lord our God;" "Alleluia! for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth." Amen!
