Psalm 96
Holman Christian Standard Bible  Par ▾ 
1Sing a new song to the LORD;

sing to the LORD, all the earth.a

2Sing to Yahweh, praise His name;

proclaim His salvation from day to day.b

3Declare His glory among the nations,

His wonderful works among all peoples.c

4For the LORD is great and is highly praised;

He is feared above all gods.d

5For all the gods of the peoples are idols,

but the LORD made the heavens.e

6Splendor and majesty are before Him;

strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.f

7Ascribe to the LORD, you families of the peoples,

ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.g

8Ascribe to Yahweh the glory of His name;h

bring an offering and enter His courts.i

9Worship the LORD in the splendor of His holiness;j

tremble before Him, all the earth.k

10Say among the nations: “The LORD reigns.l

The world is firmly established; it cannot be shaken.m

He judges the peoples fairly.”n

11Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice;

let the sea and all that fills it resound.o

12Let the fields and everything in them exult.

Then all the trees of the forest will shout for joyp

13before the LORD, for He is coming —

for He is coming to judge the earth.

He will judge the world with righteousness

and the peoples with His faithfulness.q
