Psalms 117 Commentary

Please choose a passage:

Psalm 117:1-2

Sincerest praise is the appropriate response to the Lord’s activity in creation from all of God’s people in all corners of the earth. By so acknowledging the Lord’s special love for every person, each of whom He has created for an everlasting purpose, we honor God’s historic and salvific deeds among us. We also find freedom in the reality of who God is. His love for every person unshackles us to be all God intended. This psalm is part of "The Hallel" (praise) which consists of Psalm 113-118.
