"Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker." Psalms 95:6
In this one verse, there are 3 unique Hebrew words used to describe this invitation to worship the LORD our Maker.
worship = shâchâh = to depress, to bow down, or to fall down flat.
bow down = kâraʻ = to bend the knee; to sink, to prostrate
kneel = bârak = to bless God; to bow down and kneel in humble reverence
This verse alone is a picture of humility before Yahweh.
It is meant to inspire us as worshipers to bring ourselves low before God, not just physically bowing down but humbling ourselves before Him.
Bending down shows reverence, expresses honor, submission, and allegiance to His high authority.
We bow down because there is no greater or more powerful being and He is worthy of our complete surrender.
So come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker!
