Today, I ran across Psalm 100.
I don't know if you have noticed but many people think that music in the church should be tranquil. Let's look at the verses above in "The Message".
1-2 On your feet now—applaud God! Bring a gift of laughter,
sing yourselves into his presence.
3 Know this: God is God, and God, God.
He made us; we didn't make him.
We're his people, his well-tended sheep.
4 Enter with the password: "Thank you!"
Make yourselves at home, talking praise.
Thank him. Worship him.
5 For God is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.
While there are times to be quiet and introspective, I don't see that here. The King James phrases the first verse as "A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands". with the word Noise meaning "figuratively to split the ears (with sound)".
Let's look quickly at Psalm 150 (my favorite) in The Message.
Hallelujah! Praise God in his holy house of worship,Here, the word "praise" means "to shine; hence to make a show; to boast; and thus to be (clamorously) foolish; to rave"
praise him under the open skies;
Praise him for his acts of power,
praise him for his magnificent greatness;
Praise with a blast on the trumpet,
praise by strumming soft strings;
Praise him with castanets and dance,
praise him with banjo and flute;
Praise him with cymbals and a big bass drum,
praise him with fiddles and mandolin.
Let every living, breathing creature praise God!
Are we being loud enough when we praise?
