Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

Psalms 100


:-. As closing this series (see on :-), this Psalm is a general call on all the earth to render exalted praise to God, the creator, preserver, and benefactor of men.

Verse 1

1, 2. With thankful praise, unite service as the subjects of a king (Psalms 2:11; Psalms 2:12).

Verse 3

3. To the obligations of a creature and subject is added that of a beneficiary ( :-).

Verse 4

Enter—or, "Come with solemnity" (Psalms 95:6).

Verse 5

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