Worship Yahweh (Ps 96:7-96:9)

“Ascribe to Yahweh!

O families of the peoples!

Ascribe to Yahweh

Glory and strength!

Ascribe to Yahweh

The glory due his name!

Bring an offering!                                             

Come into his courts!

Worship Yahweh in holy splendor!

Tremble before him!

All the earth!”

This is a universal call for all people to worship Yahweh. They were to recognize his glory and his strength. They were to acknowledge the glory of his name. They were to bring offerings to the court of Yahweh with their best garments on them. All the earthly humans should tremble before him.

Worship Yahweh (Ps 29:1-29:2)

A Psalm of David

Ascribe to Yahweh!

O heavenly beings!

Ascribe to Yahweh!

Glory and strength!

Ascribe to Yahweh!

The glory of his name!

Worship Yahweh in holy splendor.”

Once again, Psalm 29 is merely a psalm of David without any other indications. It accents Yahweh’s power in a storm. However, these beginning verses are like a call to worship. They had to ascribe to Yahweh in a repeated refrain. This was the call to those both in heaven and on earth to recognize the glory and strength of the name of Yahweh. This Yahweh worship should be in holy splendor.
