The Psalms

Psalm 100

An exhortation to praise God cheerfully, 1, 2, for his greatness, 3; and for his power, 4, 5.

1 [A Psalm of Praise.] Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all you lands.

2 Serve the LORD with gladness. Come before his presence with singing.

3 Know that the LORD himself is God. It is he who has 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 to him and bless his name.

5 For the LORD is good. His mercy is everlasting and his truth endures to all generations.

Notes

John Calvin's Chapter Summary:

The title of this psalm may serve for a summary of its contents Moreover, its brevity renders a lengthened discourse unnecessary. The Psalmist, in an especial manner, invites believers to praise God, because he has chosen them to be his people, and has taken them under his care.
