John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 95



Verses 1-11

This Ps. (the 'Venite,' 'Invitatory Psalm') consists of a call to praise God as King, as the Creator of the world, and the Shepherd of His people (Psalms 95:1-7), followed by a warning against unbelief, drawn from the fate of the rebellious Israelites in the wilderness (Psalms 95:7-11). There is nothing to mark its date, but like the other Pss. of the same group it may be referred to the days of the return from Babylon.

4. Strength of the hills] RV 'heights of the mountains.'

7. If ye will] RV 'Oh that ye would.'

8. In the provocation] RV 'at Meribah' (Numbers 20:13). Temptation] RV 'Massah' (Exodus 17:7).

7-11. These vv. are quoted in Hebrews 3:7-11, and are the basis of the argument that follows.
