Ps. 100 :

This psalm is formally distinct from the kingship psalm collection ( 93–99 ): it nowhere mentions the kingship of God, and unlike 93–99 , it has a typical superscription. Nevertheless, as noted below, it shares many themes and words with these psalms. The reference in v. 3 recalls the royal shepherd image. It even has the same structure as Pss. 95–97 : a call to worship followed by a reason introduced by “ki,” for. The many similarities between Ps. 100 and the previous ones suggest that Ps. 100 serves as an anthology or summary for the collection. It may also be understood as a general call to worship, and may have functioned as an introduction to larger liturgical works; it serves a similar role now when recited in the daily morning service. It is universalistic like Deutero‐Isaiah in the sense that all the earth is expected to acknowledge that the Lord is God.

1 :

It is uncertain if “todah” should be translated for praise, specifying the genre of the psalm (see Radak), or if it refers to the thanksgiving offering (so Rashi; see 50.13–14 n. ), suggesting a liturgy to be recited in conjunction with the sacrifice. On shouting, see 47.2 n., and 95.1–2; 98.4, 6 .

2 :

On gladness, see 97.11; contrast 2.11: “Serve the LORD in awe; tremble with fright.”

3 :

The LORD (YHVH) as sole or most powerful God is emphasized in Pss. 96–98 . On the flock, see 95.7 .

4 :

This type of call to worship typifies 95–99; on courts see 96.8 . With praise may also be rendered “with a thanksgiving offering.”

5 :

On the formula For the Lord is good; His steadfast love is eternal, see 106.1 n. For steadfast love and faithfulness, see 98.3 .
