PSALM XCV. Chapter Overview

The author of this psalm was David, as is affirmed, Hebrews 4:7. It has a special reference to the days of the Messiah; as it is understood by the apostle, Hebrews 3:7 &c. and Hebrews 4:3-9. Herein we are called upon, to praise God, as a great and gracious God, verse 1-7.
To hear God's voice, and not harden our hearts, lest we fall as the Israelites did, verse 8-11.

Verse 3
God's - Above all that are called God's angels, earthly potentates, and especially the false gods of the Heathen.

Verse 4
Hand - Under his government. Strength - The strongest or highest mountains. V.7. Pasture - Whom he feeds and keeps in his own pasture, or in the land which he hath appropriated to himself. The sheep - Which are under his special care. Today - Forthwith or presently.

Verse 8
Harden not - By obstinate unbelief. Provocation - In that bold and wicked contest with God in the wilderness. Temptation - In the day in which you tempted me.

Verse 9
Works - Both of mercy, and of justice.

Verse 10
Do err - Their hearts are insincere and bent to backsliding. Not known - After all my teaching and discoveries of myself to them; they did not know, nor consider, those great things which I had wrought for them.

Verse 11
My rest - Into the promised land, which is called the rest, Deuteronomy 12:9.
