Psalm 150 or God's Rock Concert

Updated on March 7, 2011

Psalm 150

1 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens!
2 Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!

3 Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
4 Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!
5 Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

Let's celebrate for God!

This is a great psalm and it ends the entire book of psalms with a huge rock concert. People are singing and playing whatever instruments they can find. Everyone is dancing and celebrating that God is great. This is a great thought for so many of us who simply don’t want to look silly or do anything special for God. We can each pick something we are good at and use that talent to give glory to God. This psalm starts off with everyone gathering in the House of the Lord, and as the list of all the wonders and miracles that God has done for us is read off and listed for all to see. Once people realize they are here to witness the glory and grace of God they can’t help but grab something and start singing or playing any instrument they can find. There is a reason this is the very last psalm in the book, because it is the final climatic end to everything the Psalms have taught throughout the entire 150 chapters.

Each chapter is meant to teach, help or show people how to get a closer relationship with God. The final chapter brings everyone together to celebrate God and the glory God has given them.  Once all the learning is done, once all the work is over, people gather together in one place for one reason, to have a great time with music, dancing and celebration. This would be a great way to look at the end of times, when all is said and done, we will gather together to celebrate the gift of life and peace that Jesus gave us. Not only is this the end of Psalms, but it is also a look at what will happen at the end of all time.

What can we do?

What do you like to do? Is there anything you like to do more than most people? It may not have anything to do with music, it could be sports, academics, or some other way that you can show your love for God so all can see.  That is what Psalm 150 is calling you to do to celebrate God. Show people you enjoy the gifts God has given you by using that specific gift for all to see. As long as you have breath find a way to celebrate what the Lord has given you.

This is one of my favorite psalms because people are gathering together for one simple reason, to give glory to God. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. The first and last line can also be translated as Halleluiah, which is simply the Hebrew word for Praise the Lord. We can celebrate the gifts God has given us however we think is the best way to do it.

      Thanks for the comment. It is one of my favorites, I just love the idea of everyone coming together and making music in glory to God. Maybe it is generational, but I see it as a huge battle of the bands where each one is offering their all for the Lord.

      Excellent! However, I never thought of Psalm 150 as God's rock concert before. Very clever!
