Psalm 95

Psalm 95 (Greek numbering: Psalm 94) is part of the biblical Book of Psalms. It is one of the Royal Psalms, Psalm 93-99, praising God as the King of His people. Psalm 95 identifies no author, but Hebrews 4:7 attributes it to David.[1] The Greek Septuagint version of the Bible also claims David as author. In the Septuagint and in its Latin translation the Vulgate, this psalm is Psalm 94 following a slightly different numbering system.



New Testament[edit]


In the Latin Psalters used by the Roman liturgy it forms the invitatory which is sung daily before matins. It may be sung as a canticle in the Anglican and Lutheran liturgy of Morning Prayer, when it is referred to by its incipit as the Venite or Venite, exultemus Domino (also A Song of Triumph).


Jean-Joseph Cassanéa de Mondonville set one grand motet "Venite, exultemus" (before 1740).
