Psalms 96

Psalm 961

96:1 Sing to the Lord a new song!2

Sing to the Lord, all the earth!

96:2 Sing to the Lord! Praise his name!

Announce every day how he delivers!3

96:3 Tell the nations about his splendor!

Tell4 all the nations about his amazing deeds!

96:4 For the Lord is great and certainly worthy of praise;

he is more awesome than all gods.5

96:5 For all the gods of the nations are worthless,6

but the Lord made the sky.

96:6 Majestic splendor emanates from him;7

his sanctuary is firmly established and beautiful.8

96:7 Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the nations,

ascribe to the Lord splendor and strength!

96:8 Ascribe to the Lord the splendor he deserves!9

Bring an offering and enter his courts!

96:9 Worship the Lord in holy attire!10

Tremble before him, all the earth!

96:10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!

The world is established, it cannot be moved.

He judges the nations fairly.”

96:11 Let the sky rejoice, and the earth be happy!

Let the sea and everything in it shout!

96:12 Let the fields and everything in them celebrate!

Then let the trees of the forest shout with joy

96:13 before the Lord, for he comes!

For he comes to judge the earth!

He judges the world fairly,11

and the nations in accordance with his justice.12
