A psalm. For giving grateful praise.
Enter into his gates; the gates of his courts; for the people might enter no further, and the courts had walls and gates as well as the house.
Be thankful unto him – That is, Offer thanksgiving and praise. Come before him with a grateful heart.
1 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
