Commentary for Psalms 100

An exhortation to praise God, and rejoice in him.

- This song of praise should be considered as a prophecy, and even used as a prayer, for the coming of that time when all people shall know that the Lord he is God, and shall become his worshippers, and the sheep of his pasture. Great encouragement is given us, in worshipping God, to do it cheerfully. If, when we strayed like wandering sheep, he has brought us again to his fold, we have indeed abundant cause to bless his name. The matter of praise, and the motives to it, are very important. Know ye what God is in himself, and what he is to you. Know it; consider and apply it, then you will be more close and constant, more inward and serious, in his worship. The covenant of grace set down in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament, with so many rich promises, to strengthen the faith of every weak believer, makes the matter of God's praise and of his people's joys so sure, that how sad soever our spirits may be when we look to ourselves, yet we shall have reason to praise the Lord when we look to his goodness and mercy, and to what he has said in his word for our comfort.

Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

    1 (A Psalm of praise.) Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

    2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

    3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

    4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

    5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

    CHRISTMAS? The church of Rome began formally celebrating Christmas in the 4th century; on December 25 in 336 AD, during the reign of the emperor Constantine. As Constantine had made Christianity the effective religion of the empire, some have speculated that choosing this date had the political motive of weakening THE TRUTH with paganism/ pagan celebrations. It is one of the Babylonian practices Rome adopted and deceived Christians. (Jeremiah 52:31) Saturnalia, the Roman feast for Saturn, was associated with the winter solstice. on a fixed date, 25 December. SUNDAY? On March 7, 321, however, Roman Emperor Constantine I issued a civil decree making Sunday a day of rest from labor(DANIEL 7:25)

  • Brianna on Psalms 100
    Many people wonder why they should serve the true God, Jehovah Yahweh . I think these 5 verses sums it up nicely. Vs. 2 implores us to know our God . The whole chapter encourages us to worship him and find joy in him. Why? Vs. 2 states a plain answer: He created us. Then vs.5 gives this reason: He is Good, Loyal, Loving, and Faithful Forever. Doesn't that draw you closer to our God!?!?

    to serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is to accept the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made Calvary to pay for our sin. to accept Jesus Christ is to have elevating life John 11:25-26 . to not accept Him is Death.
