Psalms 107:22 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 107:22

And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving
Not legal sacrifices, but spiritual and evangelical ones, the sacrifices of praise and thankfulness which God has enjoined are well pleasing to him through Christ, glorify him, and are but our reasonable service; see ( Hebrews 13:15 ) .

And declare his works with rejoicing:
tell them to the children of men, what he has done for them, for soul and body; let them come to Zion with joy and everlasting joy on their heads; to the gates thereof, or to the public assemblies of the saints, and there declare what great things the Lord has done for them; and has had compassion upon them in healing their bodily diseases, and curing them of their soul maladies.
