Selah
2That #Acts 18:25Your way may be known on earth,
#Is. 52:10; Titus 2:11Your salvation among all nations.
3Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
4Oh, let the nations be glad and sing for joy!
For #(Ps. 96:10, 13; 98:9)You shall judge the people righteously,
And govern the nations on earth.
Selah
5Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.

And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.
