Psalms 100


     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).
