Psalm 150 “Praise the Lord”

Passage: Psalm 150
Service Type:

Psalm 150 closes the book with a great hymn of praise.  It is sung from the heavenly-temple (v. 1), celebrates God's salvation (v. 2), and is characterized by great joy (vv. 3-5).  What provokes such a song?  God has fulfilled the promise He made to David, establishing a King upon Mt. Zion.  God has raised up this "horn" for the people (148:14), who leads them into battle, destroying their enemies (149:6-9).  God has brought salvation - praise the Lord!
