This psalm contains, (1.) Solemn calls to celebrate the praises of Jesus and his Father, on account of what he had done, and what he is to us, and we to him, ver. 1-7. (2.) Alarming warnings, to hear his voice, and not to harden our hearts, as the Israelites in the desert, who on that account were debarred from the promised land, ver. 7-11.

While I sing, let me behold the glories of my Redeemer, and believe my new-covenant relation to him; and while it is yet called to-day, let me beware of being hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. And since there is a promise left me of entering into his rest, let me take heed, lest I should seem to come short of it, through unbelief.

1 O come, let us sing to the Lord:
come, let us ev’ry one
A joyful noise make to the Rock
of our salvation.

2 Let us before his presence come
with praise and thankful voice;
Let us sing psalms to him with grace,
and make a joyful noise.

3 For God, a great God, and great King,
above all gods he is.
4 Depths of the earth are in his hand,
the strength of hills is his.

5 To him the spacious sea belongs,
for he the same did make;
The dry land also from his hands
its form at first did take.

6 O come, and let us worship him,
let us bow down withal,
And on our knees before the Lord
our Maker let us fall.

7 For he’s our God, the people we
of his own pasture are,
And of his hand the sheep; to-day,
if ye his voice will hear,

8 Then harden not your hearts, as in
the provocation,
As in the desert, on the day
of the tentation:

9 When me your fathers tempted and proved,
and did my working see;
10 Ev’n for the space of forty years
this race hath grieved me.

I said, This people errs in heart,
my ways they do not know:
11 To whom I swore in wrath, that to
my rest they should not go.
