Psalms 95 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 95

part. An exhortation to praise God. (1-7) A warning not to tempt Him. (7-11)

Verses 1-7 Whenever we come into God's presence, we must come with thanksgiving. The Lord is to be praised; we do not want matter, it were well if we did not want a heart. How great is that God, whose the whole earth is, and the fulness thereof; who directs and disposes of all!, The Lord Jesus, whom we are here taught to praise, is a great God; the mighty God is one of his titles, and God over all, blessed for evermore. To him all power is given, both in heaven and earth. He is our God, and we should praise him. He is our Saviour, and the Author of our blessedness. The gospel church is his flock, Christ is the great and good Shepherd of believers; he sought them when lost, and brought them to his fold.

Verses 7-11 Christ calls upon his people to hear his voice. You call him Master, or Lord; then be his willing, obedient people. Hear the voice of his doctrine, of his law, and in both, of his Spirit: hear and heed; hear and yield. Christ's voice must be heard to-day. This day of opportunity will not last always; improve it while it is called to-day. Hearing the voice of Christ is the same with believing. Hardness of heart is at the bottom of all distrust of the Lord. The sins of others ought to be warnings to us not to tread in their steps. The murmurings of Israel were written for our admonition. God is not subject to such passions as we are; but he is very angry at sin and sinners. That certainly is evil, which deserves such a recompence; and his threatenings are as sure as his promises. Let us be aware of the evils of our hearts, which lead us to wander from the Lord. There is a rest ordained for believers, the rest of everlasting refreshment, begun in this life, and perfected in the life to come. This is the rest which God calls his rest.

Psalms 95 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

PSALM 95

Psalms 95:1-11 . David ( Hebrews 4:7 ) exhorts men to praise God for His greatness, and warns them, in God's words, against neglecting His service.

1. The terms used to express the highest kind of joy.
rock--a firm basis, giving certainty of salvation ( Psalms 62:7 ).

2. come . . . presence--literally, "approach," or, meet Him ( Psalms 17:13 ).

3. above . . . gods--esteemed such by men, though really nothing ( Jeremiah 5:7 , 10:10-15 ).

4, 5. The terms used describe the world in its whole extent, subject to God.

6. come--or, "enter," with solemn forms, as well as hearts.

7. This relation illustrates our entire dependence (compare Psalms 23:3 , 74:1 ). The last clause is united by Paul ( Hebrews 3:7 ) to the following (compare Psalms 81:8 ),

8-11. warning against neglect; and this is sustained by citing the melancholy fate of their rebellious ancestors, whose provoking insolence is described by quoting the language of God's complaint ( Numbers 14:11 ) of their conduct at Meribah and Massah, names given ( Exodus 17:7 ) to commemorate their strife and contention with Him ( Psalms 78:18 Psalms 78:41 ).

10. err in their heart--Their wanderings in the desert were but types of their innate ignorance and perverseness.
that they should not--literally, "if they," &c., part of the form of swearing (compare Numbers 14:30 , Psalms 89:35 ).
