Psalm 96
New King James Version Par ▾ 

A Song of Praise to God Coming in Judgment

1Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
3Declare His glory among the [a]nations,
His wonders among all peoples.

4For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised;
He is to be feared above all gods.
5For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But the Lord made the heavens.
6Honor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.

7Give[b] to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
Give to the Lord glory and strength.
8[c]Give to the Lord the glory due His name;
Bring an offering, and come into His courts.
9Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!
Tremble before Him, all the earth.

10Say among the [d]nations, “The Lord reigns;
The world also is firmly established,
It shall not be [e]moved;
He shall judge the peoples righteously.”

11Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
Let the sea roar, and [f]all its fullness;
12Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.
Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice
13    before the Lord.
For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth.
He shall judge the world with righteousness,
And the peoples with His truth.
