Psalm 99

Praising God’s holiness as seen in his dealings with Israel.

1-3 God rules from Israel
4-5 God is righteous in Israel
6-9 God forgives Israel

  • God’s holiness is (1) his majestic transcendence—he is separate from all creation and (2) his moral purity—he is separate from all that is morally impure.
  • What does “his holy hill” refer to (v. 9)? Why was God to be worshiped there?
