This Psalm insists on the same subject as the two preceding; and contains, (1) Demands of praise to the Redeemer, for the wonders he hath wrought; the victories he hath won; the discoveries he hath made, and the promises he fulfils; ver. 1, 3.(2) Demands of universal., and high rejoicing at the erection and establishment of his gospel church; and at his coming in the clouds to judge the world; ver. 4–9.
While my lips utter these lofty notes, let my soul according to this time also, say, What hath the Lord wrought? What is Jesus? What is JEHOVAH to my heart? What hath he done for mankind, and what for my soul? What of Jesus? What of JEHOVAH, have mine eyes seen and my heart tasted ? And while I assuredly believe his return to judgment, let me with ardor look for that blessed hope, and glorious appearance of the great God my Saviour. Let my soul with rapture spring forth to meet his burning chariot-wheels, and long to see creation all on flames.

PSALM XCIX. This Psalm is of the same general nature with the three preceding, and calls men to revere, worship, and praise the Messiah, and his father, (1) For the glory, greatness, mercy, and equity of his government; ver. 1-5. (2) For the instances of his kindness to Israel, in remarkably regarding and honouring their noted deliverers, and reformers; ver. 6-9.
While I sing this, let my soul stand in awe of Jehovah's greatness and excellency. Let me call on God in every time of need, that he may answer and save me. Let me hope that he will forgive and subdue, but never that he will indulge my transgressions. For the Lord my God is holy.
TH' eternal Lord doth reign as King ;
· let th’ earth be mov'd and shake: 2 The Lord in Zion great and high,
above all people is. 3 Thy great and dreadful name (for it
is holy) let them bless. 4 The King's strength also judgment loves ;
thou settlest equity: Just judgment thou dost execute
in Jacob righteously. 5 The Lord our God exalt on high;
and rev'rently do ye
Before his footstool worship him :
the holy One is he.
Samuel, with them that call
and he them answer'd all. hy Within the pillar of the cloud
he unto them did speak:
and laws, they did not break.' 8 Thou answerd'st them, O Lord our God,
thou wast a God that gave
thou wouldest vengeance have. 9 Do ye exalt the Lord our God,
and at his holy hill
our God is holy still.

Knowing the Lord to be my God, let me approach his ordinances, and enter his heavenly palaces, with an heart ravished with his excellencies and kindness, and a mouth filled with his praise.
LL people, that on earth do dwell,
sing to the Lord with cheerful voice ; Him serve with mirth, his praise forth tell,
Come ye before him and rejoice.
3 Know that the Lord is God indeed;
Without our aid he did us make :
And for his sheep he doth us take. 4 O enter then his gates with praise,
Approach with joy his courts unto :
For it is seemly so to do.
His mercy is for ever sure :
make ye a joyful noise.
come with a singing voice. 3 Know ye the Lord, that he is God;
not we, but he us made : We are his people, and the sheep
within his pasture fed. 4 Enter his gates and courts with praise,
to thank him go ye thither : To him express your thankfulness,
and bless his name together. 5 Because the Lord our God is good,
his mercy faileth never ; And to all generations his truth endureth ever.
