Anthony Gammage ~ Psalm 150
Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen.
Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things. Blessed be his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory! Amen and Amen!
Blessed be the LORD forever! Amen and Amen.
Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! And let all the people say, “Amen!” Praise the LORD!
Tim Keller: The psalms are, in the end, a miniature of life. Every possible experience, if prayed to the God who is really there,is destined to end in praise.
Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!
1 Corinthians 10:31
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
St. Augustine – A Christian should be an alleluia from head to foot.
Tim Keller: Confession leads to the joy of forgiveness. Laments lead to a deeper resting in him for our happiness. If we could praise God perfectly, we would love him completely and then our joy would be full.
Tim Keller: Psalm 150 gives us a glimpse of that unimaginable future. So praise him everywhere (verse 1) for everything (verse 2) in every way (verses 3–5). “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord” (verse 6).
