Through the psalmists, God commands us at least five times to make a joyful noise to Him.
Ps. 66:1 <To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm.> Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
Ps. 81:1 <To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of Asaph.> Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
Ps. 98:4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
Ps. 98:6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
Ps. 100:1 <A Psalm of praise.> Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Three times, He commands all the earth to do so (Ps. 66:1; 98:4; 100:1). He also commands that we would do so by playing musical instruments (Ps. 98:6).
Moreover, we are to do so with thanksgiving and we are to do so with the Psalms.
Ps. 95:1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
We only give God the full glory that we owe Him when we worship Him joyfully through making a joyful noise to Him gratefully with Psalms and with musical instruments. Let us do so and let us make known to all the earth to do so!
