John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 98



Verses 1-9

This Ps. closely resembles Psalms 96, especially in its beginning and ending, and is to be referred to the same occasion. It celebrates a deliverance which God has wrought for Israel in the sight of all the earth (Psalms 98:1-3), 'summons all men (Psalms 98:4-6), and all nature (Psalms 98:7-9) to praise Him. Psalms 98:6 proclaims Him as King, and Psalms 98:9 anticipates with gladness His coming to judge the world.
