Psalms 96

1Sing to the  Lord a new song;
sing to the  Lord, all the earth.
2Sing to the  Lord, praise his name;
proclaim his salvation day after day.
3Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvellous deeds among all peoples.
4For great is the  Lord and most worthy of praise;
he is to be feared above all gods.
5For all the gods of the nations are idols,
but the  Lord made the heavens.
6Splendour and majesty are before him;
strength and glory are in his sanctuary.
7Ascribe to the  Lord, all you families of nations,
ascribe to the  Lord glory and strength.
8Ascribe to the  Lord the glory due to his name;
bring an offering and come into his courts.
9Worship the  Lord in the splendour of his
Or Lord with the splendour of
tremble before him, all the earth.
10Say among the nations, ‘The  Lord reigns.’
The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved;
he will judge the peoples with equity.
11Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
12Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
13Let all creation rejoice before the  Lord, for he comes,
he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
and the peoples in his faithfulness.
