Psalm 150)

1 Praise you the LORD. (Hallelu-YAH)

Praise God in His sanctuary: (The earthly sanctuary and the heavenly; the lower being formed on the pattern of the higher. See Heb. 8:5; 9:23; and cp. 1 Chron. 28:11-13,19.)

Praise Him in the expanse (Gen. 1:6) of His power.

2 Praise Him in [the recital of] His mighty acts:
Praise Him according to the abundance of His greatness (or grandeur).

3 Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet:
Praise Him with the psaltery and harp.
4 Praise Him with the drum and dance:
Praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe (or reed).
5 Praise Him upon the loud cymbals:
Praise Him upon the high sounding cymbals.
6 Let every thing that has breath (i.e. in contrast with material instruments) praise the LORD.

Praise you The LORD. (Thus fitly closing the Book of Psalms. Cp. the endings of the other 4 books.)
