Psalms 96

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