Rashi's Commentary:

Chapter 150

1. Hallelujah! Praise God in His holy place, praise Him in the firmament of His might.   א. הַלְלוּיָהּ | הַלְלוּ אֵל בְּקָדְשׁוֹ הַלְלוּהוּ בִּרְקִיעַ עֻזּוֹ:
2. Praise Him with His mighty deeds, praise Him as befits His superb greatness.   ב. הַלְלוּהוּ בִּגְבוּרֹתָיו הַלְלוּהוּ כְּרֹב גֻּדְלוֹ:
3. Praise Him with a shofar blast, praise Him with psaltery and lyre.   ג. הַלְלוּהוּ בְּתֵקַע שׁוֹפָר הַלְלוּהוּ בְּנֵבֶל וְכִנּוֹר:
4. Praise Him with timbres and dance, praise Him with stringed instruments and flute.   ד. הַלְלוּהוּ בְתֹף וּמָחוֹל הַלְלוּהוּ בְּמִנִּים וְעֻגָב:
with stringed instrument and flute: Heb. במנים ועגב. They are kinds of musical instruments.  
5. Praise Him with resounding cymbals, praise Him with resonant cymbals.   ה. הַלְלוּהוּ בְּצִלְצְלֵי שָׁמַע הַלְלוּהוּ בְּצִלְצְלֵי תְרוּעָה:
with resounding cymbals: Heb. בצלצלי שמע, cymbals that let a sound be heard. שָׁמַע is a noun, like שֶׁמַע, with a “segol,” but because of the “ethnactha” [which denotes a pause], it is vowelized with a long “kamatz,” and therefore, its accent is above, under the “shin.”  
6. Let every soul praise God. Hallelujah!   ו. כֹּל הַנְּשָׁמָה תְּהַלֵּל יָהּ הַלְלוּיָהּ:
