In the Bible Knowledge Commentary, Allen P. Ross writes: “Israel should offer their sacrifices of thanksgiving from a genuine trust in the Lord. The solution to formalism is to worship in genuine
faith, which is why Asaph called on the people to sacrifice thank offerings. The Hebrew word for thank offerings is tôdâh, from the verb yāḏâh, “to acknowledge, thank.” Such an offering could not be given unless the offerer had experienced God’s work on his behalf. If he was in distress and called on God, the Lord would answer. Then the offerer would praise the Lord as a spontaneous expression of his enjoyment of God’s benefits. If the people had been praising they would have enjoyed His benefits, not worshiping in an empty ritualistic form.”
