Study Guide – Psalm 117


Praise the Lord, all you nations;
    extol him, all you peoples.
For great is his love toward us,
    and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.

Praise the Lord. NIV

Quickly– What command is repeated in this Psalm?

Quickly– Who is supposed to follow this command? Does that include you?

Not so quickly– How could you follow this command today?

What is the difference between "praising" and "extolling" the Lord?

What reasons are given for praising the Lord? In your opinion, are these reasons strong enough to warrant the command?

::::: Equipping Challenge :::::

Memorize this chapter today. Come on, you can do it. It is only 2 verses! (And then you could say that you memorized an entire chapter of the Bible!) Throughout the day, repeat these words, reminding yourself of the command and reminding yourself of the reasons for the command. At the end of the day, take time to notice what difference this made in your life.
