95 1 An earnest exhortation to praise God, 4 for the government of the world and the election of the Church. 8 An admonition not to follow the rebellion of the old fathers, that tempted God in the wilderness. 11 For the which they might not enter into the land of promise.
1 Come, let us rejoice unto the Lord: let us sing [a]aloud unto the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his face with praise: let us sing loud unto him with Psalms.
3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all [b]gods,
4 In whose hand are the deep places of the earth, and the [c]heights of the mountains are his,
5 To whom the Sea belongeth, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
6 Come, let us [d]worship and fall down, and kneel before the Lord our maker.
7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his [e]hand: today, if ye will hear his voice,
8 [f]Harden not your heart, as in [g]Meribah, and as in the day of [h]Massah in the wilderness,
9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, though they had seen my work.
10 Forty years have I contended with this generation, and said, They are a people that [i]err in heart, for they have not known my ways.
11 Wherefore I sware in my wrath, saying, Surely they shall not enter into [j]my rest.
Psalm 95:1He showeth that God’s service standeth not in dead ceremonies, but chiefly in the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving.
Psalm 95:3Even the Angels (who in respect of men are thought as gods) are nothing in his sight, much less the idols, which man’s brain inventeth.
Psalm 95:4All things are governed by his providence.
Psalm 95:6By these three words he signifieth one thing: meaning that they must wholly give themselves to serve God.
Psalm 95:7That is, the flock, whom he governeth with his own hand. He showeth wherein they are God’s flock, that is, if they hear his voice.
