Psalms Chapter 96 |
1Sing to the Lord a new song,
sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2Sing to the Lord, bless His name,
proclaim His victory day after day.
3Tell of His glory among the nations,
His wondrous deeds, among all peoples.
4For the Lord is great and much acclaimed,
He is held in awe by all divine beings.
5All the gods of the peoples are mere idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
6Glory and majesty are before Him;
strength and splendor are in His temple.
7Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
8Ascribe to the Lord the glory of His name,
bring tribute and enter His courts.
9Bow down to the Lord majestic in holiness;
tremble in His presence, all the earth!
10Declare among the nations, “The Lord is king!”
the world stands firm; it cannot be shaken;
He judges the peoples with equity.
11Let the heavens rejoice and the earth exult;
let the sea and all within it thunder,
12the fields and everything in them exult;
then shall all the trees of the forest shout for joy
13at the presence of the Lord, for He is coming,
for He is coming to rule the earth;
He will rule the world justly,
and its peoples in faithfulness.
