Psalms Chapter 150

Psalms 150:1

psa 150:1

Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his (a) sanctuary: praise him in the (b) firmament of his power.

(a) That is, in the heaven.

(b) For his wonderful power appears in the firmament, which in Hebrew is called a stretching out, or spreading abroad, in which the mighty work of God shines.

Psalms 150:3

psa 150:3

Praise him with the sound of the (c) trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

(c) Exhorting the people only to rejoice in praising God, he makes mention of those instruments which by God's commandment were appointed in the old law. (Ed.)

Psalms 150:6

psa 150:6

Let every thing that hath (d) breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.

(d) He shows that all the order of nature is bound to this duty, and much more God's children, who ought never to cease to praise him, till they are gathered into that kingdom, which he has prepared for his, where they will sing everlasting praise.
