Psalms 96:1-13


  • “Sing to Jehovah a new song”

    • Jehovah, most worthy of praise (4)

    • Peoples’ gods are worthless (5)

    • Worship in holy adornment (9)

96  Sing to Jehovah a new song.+ Sing to Jehovah, all the earth!+   Sing to Jehovah; praise his name. Proclaim the good news of his salvation day after day.+   Declare his glory among the nations, His wonderful works among all the peoples.+   Jehovah is great and most worthy of praise. He is more awe-inspiring than all other gods.   All the gods of the peoples are worthless gods,+ But Jehovah is the one who made the heavens.+   In his presence are majesty* and splendor;+ Strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.+   Give Jehovah his due, you families of the peoples, Give Jehovah his due for his glory and strength.+   Give Jehovah the glory due his name;+ Bring a gift and come into his courtyards.   Bow down to* Jehovah in holy adornment;* Tremble before him, all the earth! 10  Declare among the nations: “Jehovah has become King!+ The earth* is firmly established, it cannot be moved.* He will judge* the peoples fairly.”+ 11  Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be joyful; Let the sea thunder and all that fills it;+ 12  Let the fields and everything in them rejoice.+ At the same time let all the trees of the forest shout joyfully+ 13  Before Jehovah, for he is coming,* He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the inhabited earth* with righteousness+ And the peoples with his faithfulness.+
