5 Sing unto the Lord with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
5 make music to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing,
5 Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody!
5 Round up an orchestra to play for God, Add on a hundred-voice choir.
5 Sing to the Lord with the harp, With the harp and the sound of a psalm,
5 Sing your praise to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and melodious song,
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 98:5
Commentary on Psalm 98:4-9
(Read Psalm 98:4-9)
Let all the children of men rejoice in the setting up the kingdom of Christ, for all may benefit by it. The different orders of rational creatures in the universe, seem to be described in figurative language in the reign of the great Messiah. The kingdom of Christ will be a blessing to the whole creation. We expect his second coming to begin his glorious reign. Then shall heaven and earth rejoice, and the joy of the redeemed shall be full. But sin and its dreadful effects will not be utterly done away, till the Lord come to judge the world in righteousness. Seeing then that we look for such things, let us give diligence that we may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
