    Definitions for Psalms 95:2

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 95:2

    Let us come before his presence - פניו panaiv, his faces, with thanksgiving, בתודה bethodah, with confession, or with the confession-offering. Praise him for what he has all ready done, and confess your unworthiness of any of his blessings. The confession-offering, the great atoning sacrifice, can alone render your acknowledgment of sin and thanksgiving acceptable to a holy and just God.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 95:2

    Let us come before his presence - Margin, as in Hebrew, "prevent his face." The word in Hebrew means literally to come before; to anticipate. It is the word which is commonly rendered "prevent." See Job 3:12, note; Psalm 17:13, note; Psalm 59:10, note; 1 Thessalonians 4:15, note. Here it means to come before, in the sense of "in front of." Let us stand before his face; that is, in his very presence.

    With thanksgiving - Expressing our thanks.

    And make a joyful noise unto him - The same word which occurs in Psalm 95:1.

    With psalms - Songs of praise.
