Verses of Psalms 98

Psalms 98 Summary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

Another anthem of praise for the redemption of Israel from Babylon. It begins and ends like Psalms 96, and much of its language is borrowed from Isaiah 40-66. It consists of three equal stanzas. Sing praise to Jehovah for the redemption of Israel (Psa 98:1-3). Let all the earth salute Him as King (Psa 98:4-6); let all Nature rejoice at His Advent (Psa 98:7-9).

This is the only Psalm which bears the title Mizmôr, ‘A Psalm,’ without any addition. The LXX has A Psalm of David.

It is fitly appointed as an alternative for the Magnificat at Evening Prayer. The hymn of praise for the Redemption of Israel from Babylon becomes in the mouth of the Christian Church a hymn of praise for the Redemption of the world.
