A melody.* 98 SING to Jehovah a new song,+For wonderful are the things that he has done.+His right hand, even his holy arm, has gained salvation* for him.+ 2 Jehovah has made his salvation known;+In the eyes of the nations he has revealed his righteousness.+ 3 He has remembered his loving-kindness* and his faithfulness to the house of Israel.+All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation by our God.+ 4 Shout in triumph to Jehovah, all [YOU people of] the earth.*+Be cheerful and cry out joyfully and make melody.+ 5 Make melody to Jehovah with the harp,+With the harp and the voice of melody.+ 6 With the trumpets* and the sound of the horn*+Shout in triumph before the King, Jehovah. 7 Let the sea thunder and that which fills it,+The productive land* and those dwelling in it.+ 8 Let the rivers themselves clap their hands;*All together let the very mountains cry out joyfully+ 9 Before Jehovah, for he has come to judge the earth.+He will judge the productive land with righteousness+And the peoples with uprightness.+
