[CF Devotionals] 2009-10-08 - A Timeless Reminder

As many of you know, occasionally we a CFDev / Webservants Ministries feel called to simply present the word with no adornment. Mike will return next week, but in his absence (business trip), we present Psalm 100, from both a paraphrase (The Message), as well as a pretty word-for-word translation (NASB, with cross-references).

Psalm 100

A Thanksgiving Psalm
1-2 On your feet now - applaud God! Bring a gift of laughter, sing yourselves into his presence.
3 Know this: God is God, and God, God.
 He made us; we didn't make him.
 We're his people, his well-tended sheep.

4 Enter with the password: "Thank you!"
 Make yourselves at home, talking praise.
 Thank him. Worship him.

5 For God is sheer beauty,
 all-generous in love,
 loyal always and ever.

Psalm 100

All Men Exhorted to Praise God.

A Psalm for Thanksgiving.

1(A)Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.
2 (B)Serve the LORD with gladness;
 (C)Come before Him with joyful singing.

3 Know that (D)the LORD Himself is God;
 It is He who has (E)made us, and [a]not we ourselves;
 We are (F)His people and the sheep of His pasture.

4 Enter His gates (G)with thanksgiving
 And His courts with praise
 Give thanks to Him, (H)bless His name.

5 For (I)the LORD is good;
 (J)His lovingkindness is everlasting
 And His (K)faithfulness to all generations.
