[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: Psalm 100 exhorts us to bless God, our shepherd, for his goodness to us, his sheep. The author and the occasion are not specified; but this Psalm plus Psalms 96, 97, and 98 have significant parallels with David's Psalm which is recorded in 1 Chronicles 16. This fact may give us the author (David) and the occasion (the dedication of the Tabernacle) for all four of these Psalms.
Today's Psalm has a synonymous parallelism (ideas in the Psalm match one another, sometimes in identical or nearly identical words).
A Call to Praise. The Psalmist, perhaps David, exhorts joyful noise (a shout of joy) to the LORD. We must serve him with gladness (glee) and come before him with joyful singing (1-2).
The Reasons for Praise. He is God; he made us; and we are his people and his sheep (3).
A Call to Praise. We should enter his gates with thanksgiving and praise, being thankful (or reverent) to him and blessing his name (4).
The Reasons for Praise. He is good, forever merciful, and true "unto generation and generation," (i.e., to generation after generation, or to all generations) as the original Hebrew puts it (5).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

Deliverance from Sinners and from Sin
Nearly all the Psalms (except Psalm 90) were written during the 612 year period
from the time of David around 1016 B. C. to the close of the Canon in about 404 B. C.
Psalm 90, according to its superscription, was written by Moses; this may have been around 1406 B. C.

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD,
all ye lands.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness:
come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the LORD he is God:
it is he that hath made us,
and not we ourselves;
we are his people,
and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him,
and bless his name.
5 For the LORD is good;
his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations [generation and generation].
* NOTE: On Opening and Closing Comments in the Psalms.
[Some commentators take the Psalm in Habakkuk 3 to be a standard model for the Psalms.
Habakkuk's Psalm begins with the name of the composer (Habakkuk) and a musical notation ("upon Shigionoth").
It closes with a dedication or a "send to" notice ("To the chief singer on my stringed instruments").
I have arranged similar material, where it is found in the Psalter, in accord with the model in Habakkuk.]
