Psalm 96

96
Worship in the Splendor of Holiness
1 # For ver. 1-13, see 1 Chr. 16:23-33 Oh sing to the Lord #Ps. 98:1; See Ps. 33:3a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth!
2Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
# [Isa. 52:7; 60:6] tell of his salvation from day to day.
3Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!
4For #See Ps. 48:1 great is the Lord, and #Ps. 18:3 greatly to be praised;
he is to be feared above #See Ps. 95:3all gods.
5For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the Lord #Ps. 115:15; Isa. 42:5; 44:24; Jer. 10:12made the heavens.
6Splendor and majesty are before him;
# [Ps. 78:61] strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7Ascribe to the Lord, O #Ps. 22:27 families of the peoples,
# See Ps. 29:1 ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
8Ascribe to the Lord #Ps. 29:2 the glory due his name;
bring #[Ps. 45:12]; See Ps. 68:29; 72:10 an offering, and #Ps. 100:4come into his courts!
9Worship the Lord in #See Ps. 29:2 the splendor of holiness;#96:9 Or in holy attire
# Ps. 114:7 tremble before him, all the earth!
10Say among the nations, #See Ps. 93:1 “The Lord reigns!
Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved;
he will #ver. 13; See Ps. 9:8; 58:11judge the peoples with equity.”
11Let #See Ps. 69:34 the heavens be glad, and let #Ps. 97:1 the earth rejoice;
let #Ps. 98:7the sea roar, and all that fills it;
12let #[Isa. 35:1] the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall all #[Isa. 55:12]the trees of the forest sing for joy
13before the Lord, for he comes,
for he comes #See Isa. 11:1-9to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness,
and the peoples in his faithfulness.
