Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

With trumpets - The word used here is uniformly rendered “trumpets” in the Scriptures. Numbers 10:2, Numbers 10:8-10; Numbers 31:6; et al. The trumpet was mainly employed for convening a public assembly for worship, or for assembling the hosts for battle. The original word - חצצרה chătsôtserâh - is supposed to have been designed to imitate “the broken pulse-like sound of the trumpet, like the Latin “taratantara.” So the German “trarara,” and the Arabic hadadera The word used here was given to the long, straight trumpet.

And sound of cornet … - The word here translated “cornet” is also usually rendered “trumpet,” Exodus 19:16, Exodus 19:19; Exodus 20:18; Leviticus 25:9; Joshua 6:4-6, Joshua 6:8-9, Joshua 6:13, Joshua 6:16, Joshua 6:20; et saepe. It is rendered “cornet” in 1 Chronicles 15:28; 2 Chronicles 15:14; Hosea 5:8. In the Septuagint and the Latin Vulgate it is here rendered “horn” - the meaning of “cornet.” The name - שׁפר shôphār - is supposed to have been given to this instrument from its clear and shrill sound, like the English name “clarion.” It was either made of horn, or similar to a horn - an instrument curved like a horn. The instrument was in frequent use among the Hebrews.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

With trumpet and sound of cornet,.... The Septuagint, Vulgate Latin, and Ethiopic versions, render it

with ductile trumpets, such as were made of silver, as the two trumpets for the calling of the assembly, Numbers 10:2 to which the allusion seems to be here, called "asosra" by JosephusF3Antique. Jud. l. 3. c. 12. sect. 6. according to the Hebrew language חצוצרות; which he says were in length a little less than a cubit, but the pipe narrow, somewhat thicker than a flute, having a sufficient breadth at the mouth to blow with, ending after the manner of a bell. The cornet was a trumpet or pipe, made of horn, from whence it has its name; such were those, made of rams' horns, the priests blew with when they encompassed Jericho, Joshua 6:4,

make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King; or rather "before the King, the Lord"F4לפני המלך יהוה "coram rege Domino", Pagninus, Tigurine version; so Junius & Tremellius, Piscator, Cocceius. ; before the King, who is Jehovah, who is the King of kings, and Lord of lords; let this shout be made before him, in his presence, and on account of his kingly office, and because of some eminent appearance of his kingdom and glory; see Revelation 19:6.

Geneva Study Bible

With e trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.

(e) By this repetition and earnest exhortation to give praise with instruments, and also of the dumb creatures, he signifies that the world is never able to praise God sufficiently for their deliverance.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Psalms 98:6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.

Ver. 6. Make a joyful noise] By the repeating and inculcating of this exhortation is intimated our dulness and backwardness to a business of this nature; the necessity of the duty, and excellency of the mercy that can never be sufficiently celebrated.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

6. Trumpets and… cornet—For “cornet” see note on Psalms 81:3. “Trumpets,” here, are the “silver trumpets” which Moses was commanded to make, to be used only by the priests for signals of war, the beginnings of months, festivals, and sacrifices. Numbers 10:1-10; Numbers 31:6. At first they were only two, but increased to twenty in the time of Solomon, and employed in the orchestra. 2 Chronicles 5:12

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary

Moses and Aaron among his priests. By this it is evident, that Moses also was a priest, and indeed the chief priest, in as much as he consecrated Aaron, and offered sacrifice for him, Leviticus viii. So that his pre-eminence over Aaron makes nothing for lay church headship. (Challoner) (Worthington) --- Samuel is only mentioned as a Levite. See 1 Kings xxv. 1. (Calmet)
