Psalms - Chapter 96

1

Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth.


2

Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.


3

Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.


4

For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.


5

For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens.


6

Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary.


7

Ascribe to the LORD, O families of nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.


8

Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts.


9

Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth.


10

Say among the nations, "The LORD reigns." The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.


11

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it;


12

let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy;


13

they will sing before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth.
