Total Praise – Psalm 150
150 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty expanse.
2 Praise Him for His mighty deeds;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness.
3 Praise Him with trumpet sound;
Praise Him with harp and lyre.
4 Praise Him with timbrel and dancing;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe.
5 Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord!
Psalms 146–150 form the conclusion to the psalms. And each of these five psalms begin and end with the same simple appeal: Praise the LORD. This is a repeated reminder that one of the primary ways that we should relate to God as His privileged subjects is praise, and not just any praise but total praise. Psalm 150 extends an invitation: Let all people in all places use all they have to praise the LORD for all He is and all He has done.
