Psalm 100: Old Hundredth

Affectionately known as "Old Hundredth," from its tune in the Geneva Psalter (1551), this Psalm is a call to all the earth to worship Jehovah.

Seven elements of worship are suggested:
Shout joyfully (v. 1).
Serve the Lord with gladness (v. 2a).
Come before Him with singing (v. 2b).
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving (v. 4a).
Enter His courts with praise (v. 4b).
Be thankful to Him (v. 4c).
Bless His name (v. 4d).

We should praise Him because of who He is. He is our:
Lord (v. 1).
God (v. 3a).
Creator (v. 3b).
Owner (v. 3c).
Shepherd (v. 3d).

We should praise Him because of His attributes:
He is good (v. 5).
His mercy is everlasting (v. 5).
His truth endures to all generations (v. 5).
