a mingled din of praise

Psalm 95:1-5 (JDV)

Psalm 95:1 Let us walk, let us shout joyfully to Yahveh, shout triumphantly to the rock of our salvation!
Psalm 95:2 Let us enter his presence with thanksgiving; let us shout triumphantly to him in song.
Psalm 95:3 Yes, Yahveh is a great God, a great King above all gods.
Psalm 95:4 The depths of the land are in his hand, and the mountain peaks are his.
Psalm 95:5 The sea is his; he made it. His hands formed the dry land.

a mingled din of praise

Horsley says that the Hebrew verb here rendered “shout joyfully” in verse 1 “signifies to make a loud sound of any sort, either with the voice or with instruments. In the Psalms, it generally refers to the mingled din of voices and various instruments, in the Temple service” (236).

Our voices are not enough. Music is not enough. We should praise our glorious God with a mingled din of praise!
