Come, Let Us Sing For Joy of Salvation To The LORD JESUS!

Psalm 95 NIV

1 Come, let us sing for joy To The LORD;

let us shout aloud To The ROCK of our Salvation.

2Let us come Before HIM with Thanksgiving
and Extol HIM with music and song.
3For The LORD Is The Great GOD,
The GREAT KING above all gods.
4In HIS Hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to HIM.
5The sea is HIS, for HE Made it,
and HIS Hands Formed the dry land.
6Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel Before The LORD our MAKER;

7for HE Is our GOD
and we are the people of HIS Pasture,
the flock under HIS Care.

Today, if only you would hear HIS Voice,

8“Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah,

as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness,

9where your ancestors tested ME;

they tried ME, though they had seen What I Did.

10For forty years I Was Angry With that generation;

I Said, 

‘They are a people whose hearts go astray,

and they have not known MY Ways.’

11So I Declared On Oath in MY Anger,

‘They shall never enter MY Rest.’ ”

Psalm 95

Come, let us sing for joy To The LORD - To JESUS The MESSIAH, The LORD our Righteousness in songs of praise, the Glory of HIS Person, the Riches of HIS Grace, and our thankfulness to HIM for spiritual Mercies by HIM: CHRIST Is To Be the Subject of our spiritual songs, and Is the Person to WHOSE Honor and Glory they should be directed.  

In the New Testament we are instructed to sing unto HIM, The LORD JESUS CHRIST. 

“Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from 

The SPIRIT. Sing and make music from your heart To The 


Let us make a joyful noise to the ROCK of our Salvation; to CHRIST, The ROCK, 1 Corinthians 10:4, a ROCK, for Height, being higher than the saints, than the kings of the earth, than the angels in heaven, than the heavens themselves; for Strength, being The Mighty GOD, and Mighty SAVIOR; for Shelter, being the saints security from avenging justice and wrath to come: a ROCK, on which the church and all believers are built, and which endures forever; "the ROCK of Salvation", being the author of spiritual and eternal salvation, and the strength and security of it; not only Is HE Strong To Do it, but, Being Done by HIM, it is safe in HIM; therefore shouts of joy and songs of praise are due unto HIM. This shows that vocal singing is meant, singing with a harmonious and musical voice; and that social singing, or singing in concert together, is intended. The Septuagint(LXX, Old Testament in Greek) renders it, “to GOD our SAVIOR”, Luke 1:47.

JESUS Will Come With DIVINE Vengeance On HIS Enemies

Psalm 94 NIV

1The LORD Is A GOD WHO Avenges.
O GOD WHO Avenges, Shine Forth.
2 Rise Up, Judge of the earth;
Pay Back to the proud what they deserve.

3How long, LORD, will the wicked,
how long will the wicked be jubilant?
4They pour out arrogant words;
all the evildoers are full of boasting.
5They crush YOUR people, LORD;
they oppress YOUR Inheritance.
6They slay the widow and the foreigner;
they murder the fatherless.
7They say, “The LORD Does Not See;
The GOD of Jacob Takes no notice.”
8Take notice, you senseless ones among the people;
you fools, when will you become wise?

9Does HE WHO Fashioned the ear Not Hear?
Does HE WHO Formed the eye Not See?
10Does HE WHO Disciplines nations Not Punish?
Does HE WHO Teaches mankind Lack Knowledge?
11The LORD Knows all human plans;
HE Knows that they are futile.
12Blessed is the one YOU Discipline, LORD,
the one YOU Teach from YOUR Law;

13YOU Grant them relief from days of trouble,
till a pit is dug for the wicked.
14For The LORD Will Not Reject HIS people;
HE Will Never Forsake HIS Inheritance.
15Judgment will again be founded on righteousness,
and all the upright in heart will follow it.
16Who will rise up for me against the wicked?
Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?
17Unless The LORD Had Given me Help,
I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.
18When I said, “My foot is slipping,”

YOUR Unfailing Love, LORD, Supported me.

19When anxiety was great within me,
YOUR Consolation Brought me joy.
20Can a corrupt throne be allied with YOU—
a throne that brings on misery by its decrees?
21The wicked band together against the righteous
and condemn the innocent to death.
22But The LORD Has Become my Fortress,
and my GOD the ROCK In WHOM I take refuge.

23HE Will Repay them for their sins
and Destroy them for their wickedness;
The LORD our GOD Will Destroy them.

Psalm 94

JEHOVAH Is "The GOD of Revenges", as the words may be rendered; and this is applicable to JESUS CHRIST, WHO Is The SON of JEHOVAH, and GOD over all. 

It Was HE That Took vengeance on Sodom and Gomorrah, and Rained from The LORD fire and brimstone on them; and WHO Took vengeance on the rebellion of the Israelites in the wilderness; and When HE Came in the Flesh, HE Came with vengeance to destroy satan and his works, as it was promised and prophesied HE Should, Isaiah 35:4;

“Say to those with fearful hearts, 

‘Be strong, do not fear; your GOD Will Come, HE Will Come With vengeance; with Divine Retribution HE Will Come To Save you.’"

Forty years after HIS Death, Resurrection, and Ascension, HE Took vengeance on the Jewish nation, for their unbelief and rejection of HIM, Luke 21:22, and at the opening of the sixth seal HIS Wrath Came Upon Rome Pagan, for their cruel persecutions of HIS church and people; and the cry of the souls under the altar was much like what is uttered in this psalm; see Revelation 6:9, and HE Will Avenge the blood of HIS saints on antichrist, whom HE Will Destroy with the Breath of HIS Mouth, and the saints will be called upon to rejoice, and will rejoice, when they see the vengeance, Revelation 18:20 and HIS Personal Coming Will Be In flaming fire, to Take vengeance on them who do not know GOD, and do not obey HIS Gospel, and when all the wicked will suffer the vengeance of eternal fire, 2 Thessalonians 1:8.

JEHOVAH-JESUS, YOU Are From All Eternity

Psalm 93 NIV

1The LORD Reigns, HE Is Robed in Majesty;

The LORD Is Robed in Majesty and Armed with Strength;
indeed, the world is established, firm and secure.

2 YOUR Throne Was Established long ago;
YOU Are From All Eternity.

3The seas have lifted up, LORD,
the seas have lifted up their voice;
the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.

4Mightier than the thunder of the great waters,
mightier than the breakers of the sea—
The LORD On High Is Mighty.

5YOUR Statutes, LORD, Stand firm;
Holiness Adorns YOUR House
for endless days.

Messianic Kingdom 1

This and the six following Psalms (94-99) were applied by the Jews to the times of The MESSIAH. The theme is GOD'S Supremacy in Creation, Majesty, Power, and Holiness To Be Revealed in CHRIST'S Kingdom.

GOD Is Described as The KING entering on HIS Reign, and, for Robes of Royalty, Investing HIMSELF with the glorious attributes of HIS Nature. The result of HIS Reigning is the durability of the world.

JEHOVAH Is Upright; HE Is my ROCK, And There Is No Wickedness In HIM

Psalm 92 NIV

A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day.

1It is good to praise The LORD
and make music to YOUR Name, O MOST HIGH,
2proclaiming YOUR Love in the morning
and YOUR Faithfulness at night,
3to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
and the melody of the harp.

4For YOU Make me glad by YOUR Deeds, LORD;
I sing for joy at What YOUR Hands Have Done.

5How Great Are YOUR Works, LORD,
How Profound YOUR Thoughts!

6Senseless people do not know,
fools do not understand,
7that though the wicked spring up like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be destroyed forever.
8But YOU, LORD, Are Forever Exalted.
9For surely YOUR enemies, LORD,
surely YOUR enemies will perish;
all evildoers will be scattered.
10YOU Have Exalted my horn like that of a wild ox;
fine oils have been poured on me.
11My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries;
my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.

12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,

they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;

13planted in the House of The LORD,
they will flourish in the Courts of our GOD.

14They will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green,

 “The LORD Is Upright;
HE Is my ROCK, and there is no wickedness In HIM.”

Psalm 92

The Sabbath is the day that GOD Has Hallowed, and that is to be consecrated to GOD by our turning away from the business pursuits of the working days (Isaiah 58:13.) and applying ourselves to the praise and adoration of GOD, which is the most proper, blessed Sabbath employment. It is good, i.e., not merely good in the Eyes of GOD, but also good for man, beneficial to the heart, pleasant and blessed. 

 It is probable that it was penned by David, and, being calculated for the Sabbath Day,

I. Praise, the business of the Sabbath, is here recommended (v. 1-3).

II. GOD'S Works, which gave occasion for the Sabbath, are here celebrated as great and unsearchable in general (v. 4-6).

In particular, with reference to the works both of Providence and Redemption, the psalmist sings to GOD both of Mercy and Judgment, the ruin of sinners and the joy of saints, three times counter changed.
