Psalm 98:1-9

Text: Psalm 98:1-9

In this 2-week reading plan, we are assuming a posture of thanksgiving before the Lord by meditating on ten Psalms of Gratitude. Rather than provide a written response to each Psalm, we have offered a simple yet meaningful activity designed to help us recall God’s mercies to us and through time. So grab a journal, and let’s create our own songs of thanksgiving to God.

Psalm 98
Praise the King
A psalm.

Sing a new song to the Lord,
for He has performed wonders;
His right hand and holy arm
have won Him victory.
The Lord has made His victory known;
He has revealed His righteousness
in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered His love
and faithfulness to the house of Israel;
all the ends of the earth
have seen our God’s victory.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth;
be jubilant, shout for joy, and sing.
Sing to the Lord with the lyre,
with the lyre and melodious song.
With trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn
shout triumphantly
in the presence of the Lord, our King.

Let the sea and all that fills it,
the world and those who live in it, resound.
Let the rivers clap their hands;
let the mountains shout together for joy
before the Lord,
for He is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world righteously
and the peoples fairly.

Dig Deeper:

Our God is forevermore victorious! In Psalm 98, the Israelites declared that “all the ends of the earth have seen our God’s victory”—and they joined loudly in the chorus of praise. Let’s do the same as we work through the text below.

1. Look at verses 1-3. Why were the Israelites singing a song to the Lord?

2. Now look at verses 7-9. Why should we sing a song to the Lord?

3. Why did the Israelites celebrate their victory with so much noise?

4. How can we celebrate the Lord’s victory?

    Loving reading all these posts! Especially encouraged by the comment about God being the Great Untangler!

    “silence is death”… @MERCY I love that. What truth! Shout to the Lord, Speak of His goodness, Tell of His mercies, Spread the word throughout the nations… over and over and over and OVER from beginning to end, Scripture promotes verbal expression of who God is and why we are so blessed to call Him our LORD. I think this is so overlooked… If the enemy can silence us, even the ROCKS WILL CRY OUT. THAT is how important our expression of His greatness is! :) :)

    Praise the Lord. Sing & Shout. I don’t know about you but I rarely shout lol. I was told it’s not ladylike…and oh boy I am changing that lol..I will shout to praise Him. I was told when we erupt with praise and thanksgiving, it’s a spiritual tactics of victory. Let’s shout. Noise represents vibrancy and exuberant life. Silence is death. Hallelujah. Make noise and praise Him. Be blessed dear sisters.❤️

    KIMN – love that story! I can’t carry a tune but love to sing :)

    Going back to earlier talk re: praise for who God is – just came across a description in an otherwise light-ish novel … God is the Great Untangler! Caught my eye, especially as I was looking at a sign at the recycle center this morning that said No Tanglers! Thinking about all the things I have gotten myself twisted into and thank the Lord He knew how to guide me out.
