Psalms 150 Commentary 

(150:3-5) Praise Music - Music and song were an integral part of Old Testament worship. David introduced music into the Tabernacle and temple services (1 Chronicles 16:4-7). The music must have been loud and joyous, as evidenced by the list of instruments and the presence of choirs and song leaders. Music was also important in New Testament worship (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3116) 

(150:6) How could the message be more clear? The writer was telling each and every listener to praise God. What a fitting way to end this book of praise--with direct encouragement for you to praise God too! Remember to praise him every day. 

(150:6) The book of Psalms parallels a person's own spiritual journey through life. It begins by presenting us with two roads -the way to life and the way to death. The way to death leads to deprivation and utter destruction. If we choose God's way to life, we will still face blessings and troubles, joy and grief, and successes and obstacles. But through it all, God will be with us, suiding, encouraging, comforting, and caring for us. If we have been wise and faithful, we will clearly realize when our lives draw to an end that God's road has been the right road. Knowing this will cause us to praise God for leading us in the right direction and for bringing us into the perfect world he has in store for all who have faithfully followed him.

Dave Burnette's Life Application

Everything Praises the Lord

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 150. In our text today, we see the theme of a closing hymn of praise, and we see God's creation praises Him everywhere in every way. In applying, we see how we should join this rejoicing song of praise simply for who He is...He is Lord, He is our all and all, and He is worthy of our praise. Today, we see everything praising the Lord. How about you? Do you Praise the Lord? Let us learn from our Psalm and text today to remember that everything that hath breath should praise the Lord simply because of who He is.


Psalm 150

Psalm 150

 1Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.

 2Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.

 3Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

 4Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

 5Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

 6Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
