Psalms 149:1-9; ; Psalms 150:1-6

We have reached the end of the Psalms, this book of trial whose last page will not be turned until our time on earth is over. We notice that all the sufferings which have been described in it have led to this ultimate climax: everything that has breath praising God. May it be so with each of our trials: that it might be found "unto praise and honour and glory to the appearing of Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 5:7).

The book of Psalms began with God blessing man; it ends with man blessing God. In successive chapters we have heard the hallelujah songs of the remnant who have been saved (Psalms 146:1-10), of Jerusalem (Psalms 147:1-20), and of creation (Psalms 148:1-14). The subject of Psalms 149:1-9 is the new song of Israel and the last judgments before the kingdom. Finally Psalms 150:1-6 answers questions about praise: who should be adored; where (v. 1), why (v. 2), how (vv. 3-5) and by whom (v. 6) He should be worshipped.

All the different expressions of this universal praise form a perfect harmony. The song is unique: it exalts the mighty acts and the infinite greatness of the One who will then have accomplished His plans for His own glory and for the blessing of everyone and every thing.
