A PSALM OF PRAISE.
PRAISE. Hebrew "Todah" signifying acknowledgement. In Modern Hebrew it means "Thank You".
[Psalms 100:1] MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD, ALL YE LANDS.
This is a short Psalm.
[Psalms 100:2] SERVE THE LORD WITH GLADNESS: COME BEFORE HIS PRESENCE WITH SINGING.
GLADNESS. Hebrew "simchah" meaning happiness.
Be happy to serve the Almighty.
SINGING. Hebrew "be-rananah" i.e. with rejoicing.
[Psalms 100:3] KNOW YE THAT THE LORD HE IS GOD: IT IS HE THAT HATH MADE US, AND NOT WE OURSELVES; WE ARE HIS PEOPLE, AND THE SHEEP OF HIS PASTURE.
KNOW YE. Hebrew "Da-oo". Be aware of the Almighty.
Important points: God is our God. He made us to be HIS People. We may think at times we are unworthy or that we serve with little relative requitement. God knows what HE is doing. He has his own reasons and we need to be happy to do the best we can. The Almighty guides us and looks after us.
[Psalms 100:4] ENTER INTO HIS GATES WITH THANKSGIVING, AND INTO HIS COURTS WITH PRAISE: BE THANKFUL UNTO HIM, AND BLESS HIS NAME.
[Psalms 100:5] FOR THE LORD IS GOOD; HIS MERCY IS EVERLASTING; AND HIS TRUTH ENDURETH TO ALL GENERATIONS.
Sometimes different things work themselves out through our descendants or alternately we fulfill debts and tasks left to us by our ancestors.
