Psalm 100

A psalm. For giving grateful praise.

Shout for joy(A) to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord(B) with gladness;
    come before him(C) with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.(D)
    It is he who made us,(E) and we are his[a];
    we are his people,(F) the sheep of his pasture.(G)

Enter his gates with thanksgiving(H)
    and his courts(I) with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.(J)
For the Lord is good(K) and his love endures forever;(L)
    his faithfulness(M) continues through all generations.

  1. Psalm 100:3 Or and not we ourselves

17 “Israel is a scattered flock(A)
    that lions(B) have chased away.
The first to devour(C) them
    was the king(D) of Assyria;
the last to crush their bones(E)
    was Nebuchadnezzar(F) king(G) of Babylon.”

18 Therefore this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says:

“I will punish the king of Babylon and his land
    as I punished the king(H) of Assyria.(I)
19 But I will bring(J) Israel back to their own pasture,
    and they will graze on Carmel and Bashan;
their appetite will be satisfied(K)
    on the hills(L) of Ephraim and Gilead.(M)
20 In those days, at that time,”
    declares the Lord,
“search will be made for Israel’s guilt,
    but there will be none,(N)
and for the sins(O) of Judah,
    but none will be found,
    for I will forgive(P) the remnant(Q) I spare.

31 Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him,(A) 32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”

33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”(B)

34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law,(C) ‘I have said you are “gods”’[a]?(D) 35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God(E) came—and Scripture cannot be set aside(F) 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart(G) as his very own(H) and sent into the world?(I) Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?(J) 37 Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father.(K) 38 But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.”(L) 39 Again they tried to seize him,(M) but he escaped their grasp.(N)

40 Then Jesus went back across the Jordan(O) to the place where John had been baptizing in the early days. There he stayed, 41 and many people came to him. They said, “Though John never performed a sign,(P) all that John said about this man was true.”(Q) 42 And in that place many believed in Jesus.(R)
