Worship God with Joy
A psalm of thanksgiving.#The Hebrew Bible counts the superscription as the first verse of the psalm
1Shout in triumph to Yahweh, all the earth.
2Serve#Or “Worship” Yahweh with joy;
come into his presence with exultation.
3Know that Yahweh, he is God;
he made us and we are his.#According to the reading tradition (Qere); the Kethib reads “and not we ourselves”
We are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
4Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him; bless his name.
5For Yahweh is good; his loyal love is forever,
and his faithfulness is from generation to generation.#Literally “unto a generation and a generation”
