Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Sing praises - זמרו zammeru: this word is four times repeated in this short verse, and shows at once the earnestness and happiness of the people. They are the words of exultation and triumph. Feel your obligation to God; express it in thanksgiving: be thankful, be eternally thankful, to God your King.

I remember once going to a chapel where this happened to be the text, and the good man who occupied the pulpit was more than a little of an Arminian.
