Psalms 148 Commentary 

(148:5-14) How We Should Praise God - All creation is like a majestic symphony or a great choir composed of many harmonious parts that together offer up songs of praise to the Lord. Each part (independent, yet part of the whole) is caught up and carried along in swelling tides of praise. This is a picture of how we as believers should praise God--individually, yet as part of the great choir of believers worldwide. Are you singing your part well in the worldwide choir of praise?

Dave Burnette's Life Application

Worthy of Praise

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today, we continue in the Book of Psalms with Chapter 148. In our text today, we see the theme of all creation praising the Lord simply because He is Worthy. In applying, we need to praise Him simply because He is worthy. If He never did anything for us, He is Worthy of our Praise. Add what He has done for me by dying for my sin and saving my soul, and it is hard to contain my words of Praise. How about you? Do you praise the Lord? Let us learn from our Psalm and text today to remember that our Lord is Worthy of Our Praise.


Psalm 148

Psalm 148

 1Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.

 2Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.

 3Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

 4Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.

 5Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.

 6He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.

 7Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:

 8Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word:

 9Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:

 10Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:

 11Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:

 12Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:

 13Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.

 14He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.
