PRAISE TIMES THIRTEEN
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.
The book of Psalms ends on a climatic note of joyful praise in Psalm 150. In only six verses this psalm answers the question after another involving praise and worship. In fact, the word PRAISE occurs thirteen times in Psalm 150. The first verse tells us what we are to do. We're to "Praise the Lord." In In the original Hebrew it's literally Hallelu or Praise Yahweh.
Verse 1 also tells us where to praise:"Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty firmament!" Praise is the unifying activity that links together heaven and earth.
Verse 2 tells us why to praise God. "Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to His excellent greatness." And verse 3-5 provide the how of praise-"with the sound of the trumpet--the lute and harp--the timbrel and dance--stringed instruments and flutes--loud cymbals--clashing cymbals."
Verse 6 ends with the question of who should praise God. "Everything that has breath." What joy we have as believers in Christ--praising Him today, tomorrow and forever.
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creatures. O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation.
