Psalm 150 – Praise the Lord

The title of this post really says it all; it completely sums up Psalm 150. I love how this final Psalm in this awesome book of the Bible sums up the entire book as well. Though there have been laments and complaints to God throughout the Psalms, in the end there is only praise.

Psalm 150

 1 Praise the Lord!   Praise God in his sanctuary;
      praise him in his mighty heaven!
 2 Praise him for his mighty works;
      praise his unequaled greatness!
 3 Praise him with a blast of the ram’s horn;
      praise him with the lyre and harp!
 4 Praise him with the tambourine and dancing;
      praise him with strings and flutes!
 5 Praise him with a clash of cymbals;
      praise him with loud clanging cymbals.
 6 Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!   
    Praise the Lord!

  1. I love that too, Linda, about the Psalms. How David always ended up praising God, no matter how else he felt and what he was going through. That really helps me . . .that’s what I’m suppose to do too!
    I love how this Psalm really covers it all, doesn’t it, all the things we can praise Him for . . .and all that should give Him praise.
    Loving thinking of you leading the prayer this morning Linda. Though I couldn’t be there in person, I feel like I was there in Spirit with you, praising Him too!
    p.s. I was really touched by that blast of the ram’s horn too! 🙂

    • Deb, When I first started posting Psalms on Sunday, I was kind of thinking it was me just being lazy. But it has been such a blessing to so many, I don’t feel that way any more. Peace, Linda

      • I know how you felt about doing the Psalms for Sunday, but glad that you don’t see it that way now. It’s like me doing the Inside Israel posts (copy, paste!). Your Psalms Sundays are just the perfect thing. And He always reminds me that it’s His Words that are going to make a difference to someone, really. God bless you and how He leads you in life and blogging!

  2. For some reason the “blast of the ram’s horn” touches my heart tonight.
    I want to be loud, strong, and bold in my faith! I pray for that.

    Writing has a nice way of keeing the focus on His glory. Looking forward to another good week of spiritual growth and praising Him!

    Psalm 150… what an inspiration! Thank you! : )

    • Linda, Yes, writing does help keep the focus on Him! In the past almost a year and a half I have grown bolder and “louder” in my faith, and have grown so much closer to Jesus. Peace, Linda

    • Ann, I would be surprised to ever hear you say you didn’t love a particular Psalm! I know I love them all, though some are more special than others. I actually used this one as the basis of the beginning of my Prayers of the People in church this morning. It was wonderful to praise Him out loud in so many ways and for so many things. Peace, Linda

      • 🙂

        Some do jump out at me, Linda. One of these days I’ll go through and see if I can name them! 😉

        It seems I can always find something to ‘sort out my thoughts’ in the Psalms. It’s a wonderful collection indeed.

        I love corporate praise. Would have loved to be a part of that too. I missed church today and it was great to come here and find this song of praise.
