\\INTRODUCTION TO PSALM 95\\

This psalm, though without a title, was written by David, as appears
from \\#Heb 4:7\\, and to him the Septuagint, Vulgate Latin, Syriac,
Arabic, and Ethiopic versions ascribe it. It belongs to the times of
the Messiah, as Kimchi observes; the apostle applies it to the Jews
of his time, and bespeaks them in the language of it, \\#Heb 3:7-11\\,
and in which time Israelites, believers in Christ, are called upon to
serve and worship him, in consideration of his greatness in himself,
and his goodness to them. Theodoret thinks that David spoke
prophetically of King Josiah and his times; and wrote it in the person
of him, and the priests of God.
