The summons to universal worship in gladness and praise
Psalm 100 is the summons
to universal worship of Jehovah with gladness and praise.
Jehovah is good. Verse 5 gives in principle the great
truth so often laid down as Israel's hopeHis mercy
endureth for everwhich gave them too to say, How
long? "All ye lands" is free as a translation;
it is rather "all the land" (of Israel) or
"all the earth." The claim of Israel to be His
people and the sheep of His pasture seems to extend it to
the earth. It is, however, to me very doubtful if it is
not simply "all the land of Israel." This
closes the remarkable series picturing the coming of
Jehovah (Christ) to establish righteousness and judgment
in the earth and His throne in Israel.
