New International Reader's Version

Psalm 100

Psalm 100

A psalm for giving grateful praise.

Shout for joy to the Lord, everyone on earth.
    Worship the Lord with gladness.
    Come to him with songs of joy.
Know that the Lord is God.
    He made us, and we belong to him.
We are his people.
    We are the sheep belonging to his flock.

Give thanks as you enter the gates of his temple.
    Give praise as you enter its courtyards.
    Give thanks to him and praise his name.
The Lord is good. His faithful love continues forever.
    It will last for all time to come.

The Message

Psalm 100

A Thanksgiving Psalm

11-2 On your feet now—applaud God!
    Bring a gift of laughter,
    sing yourselves into his presence.

Know this: God is God, and God, God.
    He made us; we didn’t make him.
    We’re his people, his well-tended sheep.

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

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