What could make the sea run away, the river retreat and the hills skip like lambs? Only the presence of Yahweh. And what could bring water out of the flinty rock? Only Yahweh's mercy.
The psalmist urged his companions to praise the name of the LORD. But what is praise and what is the LORD's name?
The man who fears the Lord knows true happiness. In what does his happiness consist?

The psalmist thanks the Lord with his whole heart. Why? Because he is meditating on all God's great works - and he wants us to do the same.
