The individual resolution to praise the LORD found in Psalm 146, inevitably leads to the corporate call to Jerusalem to praise Him. As such, Psalm 147 is about how God gathers and builds into one, those who pursue his praises.
The psalm is structured around three commands, in verses 1, 7, and 12. And under each the psalmist has us sing about,
- How can we praise Him?
- Why should we praise Him?
- For what should we praise Him?
