Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

June 28 - Evening

"Praise the Lord.

Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.

Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.

Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord."

- Psalms 150

Sunset on the Sea of Galilee; Click to go to next devotion  

This final psalm, Psalm 150, begins and ends with the Hebrew word, Hallelujah which means,
“Praise God.” Each verse in this psalm contains the Hebrew verb halel which means “praise.”
Halel appears ten times in these six verses.

150:1 tells us where to praise the Lord. The mention of “His holy place” likely refers to the Most Holy Place in the Jerusalem temple. This is set alongside of “the vault of His Power” in the same verse. This likely refers to his throne room in heaven itself.

150:2 tells us why to praise the Lord. The two things mentioned are:

  1. His might acts. The two categories of might acts mentioned throughout the Psalms are:
    • the Lord’s creation and sustain of the universe
    • the Lords creation and preservation of Israel.
  2. The Lord’s abounding greatness which likely is referring to his general character and
    his divine nature as in Romans 1:18-20.

150:3-5 tells us how we are to praise the Lord:

  • Blast from the Ram’s horn
  • Lute
  • Lyre
  • Timbrel
  • Dance
  • Strings
  • Flute
  • Sounding cymbals
  • Crashing cymbals

The priest played the ram’s horn. The Levitical singers played the lyres while they sang. The congregation played timbrel (tambourines and danced).

Psalm 81:1-3 also mentions these instruments:

“Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob!
Begin the music, strike the timbrel, play the melodious harp and lyre.
Sound the ram’s horn at the New Moon, and when the moon is full, on the day of our festival.”

Dancing and the playing of timbrel (tambourines) is mentioned in:

There is also a parallel for Psalm 150:3-5 in 2 Samuel 6:5 and 6:15.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Empipto (Gr) – to fall into (Eng) – the Greek word empipto means “to encounter” or “to fall into”
a pit physically as in Matt12:11 or Luke 6:39. In 1 Timothy 3:7 empipto is used metaphorically
of the snares, traps or nets that those who want to get rich will fall into.


Shishak (Pharaoh Sheshonk I, reign 943-922 BC) invaded Jerusalem and took Solomon’s gold in the fifth year of the seventeen year reign of Solomon’s son Rehoboam (about 924 BC,
2 Chronicles 12:1-2).
“When Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem, he carried off the treasures of the temple of the  Lord and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything, including the gold shields Solomon had made.” (2 Chr. 12:9)
Pharaoh Osorkon (Shishak’s oldest son and the pharaoh that followed Shishak) recorded in 921 BC on a pillar in a temple in Bubastis (Shishak’s city of origin) a list of gifts given to the gods of Egypt – 383 tons of gold and silver.

924 BC – Shishak takes Solomon’s gold from Jerusalem
922 BC – Shishak dies
921 BC – Shishak’s son records in Shishak’s hometown the dedication of 383 tons of gold and silver to Egyptian deities
