Psalms Chapter 100

Psalms 100:1

psa 100:1

As closing this series (see on Psa 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. (Psa 100:1-5)

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

Psalms 100:3

psa 100:3

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

Psalms 100:4

psa 100:4

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

Enter--or, "Come with solemnity" (Psa 95:6).

Psalms 100:5

psa 100:5

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