1A canticle for David himself, when the house was built after the captivity.
Sing ye to the Lord a new canticle: sing to the Lord, all the earth. 2Sing ye to the Lord and bless his name: shew forth his salvation from day to day. 3Declare his glory among the Gentiles: his wonders among all people. 4For the Lord is great, and exceedingly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. 5For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens. 6Praise and beauty are before him: holiness and majesty in his sanctuary. 7Bring ye to the Lord, O ye kindreds of the Gentiles, bring ye to the Lord glory and honour: 8bring to the Lord glory unto his name. Bring up sacrifices, and come into his courts: 9adore ye the Lord in his holy court. Let all the earth be moved at his presence. 10Say ye among the Gentiles, the Lord hath reigned. For he hath corrected the world, which shall not be moved: he will judge the people with justice. 11Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad, let the sea be moved, and the fulness thereof: 12the fields and all things that are in them shall be joyful. Then shall all the trees of the woods rejoice 13before the face of the Lord, because he cometh: because he cometh to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with justice, and the people with his truth.
