World English Bible
for he is our God. We are the people of his pasture, and the sheep in his care. Today, oh that you would hear his voice!
Young's Literal Translation
For He is our God, and we the people of His pasture, And the flock of His hand, To-day, if to His voice ye hearken,
Psalm 95:7 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For he is our God - Here is the reason for this service. He has condescended to enter into a covenant with us, and he has taken us for his own; therefore: -
We are the people of his pasture - Or, rather, as the Chaldee, Syriac, Vulgate, and Ethiopic read, "We are his people, and the sheep of the pasture of his hand." We are his own; he feeds and governs us, and his powerful hand protects us.
To-day if ye will hear his voice - To-day-you have no time to lose; to-morrow may be too late. God calls to-day; to-morrow he may be silent. This should commence the eighth verse, as it begins what is supposed to be the part of the priest or prophet who now exhorts the people; as if he had said: Seeing you are in so good a spirit, do not forget your own resolutions, and harden not your hearts, "as your fathers did in Meribah and Massah, in the wilderness;" the same fact and the same names as are mentioned Exodus 17:7; when the people murmured at Rephidim, because they had no water; hence it was called Meribah, contention or provocation, and Massah, temptation.

A representation of a system of things pre-determined in order that the obligations of the Covenant might be discharged; various exhibitions of the Covenant as ordained; and a description of the children of the Covenant as predestinated …

Covenanting a Duty.
So, as the Holy Spirit says: "Today, if you hear his voice,
As has just been said: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion."
God again set a certain day, calling it "Today." This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts."
A maskil of Asaph. O God, why have you rejected us forever? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?
Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will praise you forever; from generation to generation we will proclaim your praise.
Hear me, my people, and I will warn you-- if you would only listen to me, Israel!
Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
