Psalms 95
Worship and Obey the Lord
1Sing joyful songs to the Lord!
Praise the mighty rock#95.1 mighty rock: See the note at 18.2.
where we are safe.
2Come to worship him
with thankful hearts
and songs of praise.
3The Lord is the greatest God,
king over all other gods.
4He holds the deepest part
of the earth in his hands,
and the mountain peaks
also belong to him.
5The ocean is the Lord's
because he made it,
and with his own hands
he formed the dry land.
6Bow down and worship
the Lord our Creator!
7 # He 3.7-11. #He 3.15; 4.7. The Lord is our God,
and we are his people,
the sheep he takes care of
in his own pasture.
Listen to God's voice today!
8 # Ex 17.1-7; Nu 20.2-13. Don't be stubborn and rebel
as your ancestors did
at Meribah and Massah#95.8 Meribah and Massah: See the note at 81.7.
out in the desert.
9For forty years
they tested God and saw
the things he did.
10Then God got tired of them
and said,
“You never show good sense,
and you don't understand
what I want you to do.”
11 # Nu 14.20-23; Dt 1.34-36; He 4.3,5. In his anger, God told them,
“You people will never enter
my place of rest.”
