Psalms 96

Worship in the Splendor of Holiness

1 a  Oh sing to the  Lord b  a new song;
sing to the  Lord, all the earth!
2Sing to the  Lord, bless his name;
c  tell of his salvation from day to day.
3Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!
4For d  great is the  Lord, and e  greatly to be praised;
he is to be feared above f  all gods.
5For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the  Lord g  made the heavens.
6Splendor and majesty are before him;
h  strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7 Ascribe to the  Lord, O i  families of the peoples,
j  ascribe to the  Lord glory and strength!
8Ascribe to the  Lord k  the glory due his name;
bring l  an offering, and m  come into his courts!
9Worship the  Lord in n  the splendor of holiness;
Or  in holy attire

p  tremble before him, all the earth!
10 Say among the nations, q  “The  Lord reigns!
Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved;
he will r  judge the peoples with equity.”
11 Let s  the heavens be glad, and let t  the earth rejoice;
let u  the sea roar, and all that fills it;
12let v  the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall all w  the trees of the forest sing for joy
13before the  Lord, for he comes,
for he comes x  to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness,
and the peoples in his faithfulness.
