Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, And His praise in the assembly of saints.
Psalm 150:1-6 (AMP)
PRAISE THE Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in the heavens of His power!
Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to the abundance of His greatness!
Praise Him with trumpet sound; praise Him with lute and harp!
Praise Him with tambourine and [single or group] dance; praise Him with stringed and wind instruments or flutes!
Praise Him with resounding cymbals; praise Him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath and every breath of life praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
Author: Primarily Solomon (1:1) with sections attributed to “the wise”(22:17), Agur (30:1), and King Lemeul (31:1). Very little is known about the last two.
Date: Solomon reigned approximately 970-930 BC. The staff of King Hezekiah, who reigned 200 years later “copied out” the latter chapters of the book we have today (25:1).
In ten words or less: Pithy, memorable sayings encourage people to pursue wisdom.
