Psalm 98

The word salvation appears once in each of the first three verses of this psalm.

Verses 4-9a remind me of the way it looks and sounds and feels when a superstar is greeted entering an arena to perform.

In verse 9b, the conclusion of the psalm, we are told that the Lord “comes to judge the earth. / He will judge the world in righteousness / and the peoples with equity.”

Salvation is closely related to God’s judgment at the end of time.
