|<< Psalm 96 >>|
GOD'S WORD ® Translation
Sing to the LORD a new song! Sing to the LORD, all the earth!
2Sing to the LORD! Praise his name! Day after day announce that the LORD saves his people.
3Tell people about his glory. Tell all the nations about his miracles.
4The LORD is great! He should be highly praised. He should be feared more than all [other] gods
5because all the gods of the nations are idols. The LORD made the heavens.
6Splendor and majesty are in his presence. Strength and beauty are in his holy place.
7Give to the LORD, you families of the nations. Give to the LORD glory and power.
8Give to the LORD the glory he deserves. Bring an offering, and come into his courtyards.
9Worship the LORD in [his] holy splendor. Tremble in his presence, all the earth!
10Say to the nations, "The LORD rules as king!" The earth stands firm; it cannot be moved. He will judge people fairly.
11Let the heavens rejoice and the earth be glad. Let the sea and everything in it roar like thunder.
12Let the fields and everything in them rejoice. Then all the trees in the forest will sing joyfully
13in the LORD's presence because he is coming. He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness and its people with his truth.
