Psalm 96

1 Sing to Jehovah a new song. Sing to Jehovah, all the earth!

2 Sing to Jehovah; praise his name. Proclaim the good news of his salvation day after day.

3 Declare his glory among the nations, His wonderful works among all the peoples.

4 Jehovah is great and most worthy of praise. He is more awe-inspiring than all other gods.

5 All the gods of the peoples are worthless gods, But Jehovah is the one who made the heavens.

6 In his presence are majesty and splendor; Strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

7 Give Jehovah his due, you families of the peoples, Give Jehovah his due for his glory and strength.

8 Give Jehovah the glory due his name; Bring a gift and come into his courtyards.

9 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.
