Pondering the Psalms - Psalm 98

Each Sunday I am going to choose a Psalm and write down some brief thoughts on it.

Today I'm looking at Psalm 98

This is one of Encouragement to Praise.

This Psalm falls into four parts:

V. 1-3
We are Encouraged to Sing a New Song to the Lord

V. 4-6
We are Encouraged to Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord

V. 7-8
Nature is Encouraged to Praise the Lord

V. 9
We are Encouraged because We know the Lord is going to return.

Sing a New Song.


Because The Lord has

  • Done marvelous things
  • Got the victory
  • Shown His steadfast Love & faithfulness.

Make a Joyful Noise.


  • Singing praises with joy
  • Using various instruments & melody

Nature's Praise.

Yes even Nature is encouraged to Praise the Lord.


Because all of Nature is the beautiful creation of God and speaks to us of His awesomeness.

The Lord's Return.

Yes everything must Praise the Lord.


Because of the knowledge that He is going to return and when He returns He will judge the world.


He will judge righteously and fairly.

We can be so thankful that we have a 

who has looked past our unrighteousness
sees the righteousness of Jesus in us.

We should be thankful?

So we do not need to fear His return
the judgement to follow
if we are truly
redeemed by Christ.
