Further Reflections on Scripture References
Psalm 100 brings to a close a collection of psalms that celebrate the LORD's righteous rule over all creation (93, 95-99). Like the others, it was composed to be sung by the Levites at a high religious festival that annually celebrated the LORD's kingship over the entire world (perhaps the Feast of Tabernacles). Psalm 100 is the Hebrew equivalent of a cheerleader's shout–a strong call to worship the LORD with joyful song (st. 1, 3): the LORD is the one true God who made us to be "the sheep of his pasture" (st. 2), and God's love and faithfulness never fail (st. 4).

The truths of Genesis, that “he (God) formed us without our aid” resounds in stanza 2 and is paralleled in Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 9, Question and Answer 26, Belgic Confession, Article 12; and Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 8, which states that God the Father created the world “out of nothing.”
Stanza 4 speaks of the nature of God as goodness, mercy and faithfulness; this list is enlarged in Belgic Confession, Article 1: God is “eternal, incomprehensible, invisible, unchangeable, infinite, almighty; completely wise, just and good, and the overflowing source of all good.”
