12) Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
13) Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
14) He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the Lord.Psalm 148:11-14 (KJV)
In this podcast episode we look at Psalm 148. Known as the “Creation Chorus” this vivid and emotionally striking song teaches us the importance of praising God.
We provide some background and context for the chapter, and discuss why it is particularity important for those in positions of prominence and influence to praise God.
We also look at reasons for praising God, what it means to do so, and we examine an example from American history that shows us what it looks like when an entire society praises God.
