96
1Sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
2Sing to the Lord! Bless his name!
Share the news of his saving work every single day!
3Declare God’s glory among the nations;
declare his wondrous works among all people
4because the Lord is great and so worthy of praise.
He is awesome beyond all other gods
5because all the gods of the nations are just idols,
but it is the Lord who created heaven!
6Greatness and grandeur are in front of him;
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7Give to the Lord, all families of the nations—
give to the Lord glory and power!
8Give to the Lord the glory due his name!
Bring gifts!
Enter his courtyards!
9Bow down to the Lord in his holy splendor!
Tremble before him, all the earth!
10Tell the nations, "The Lord rules!
Yes, he set the world firmly in place;#LXX, Vulg; MT the world is firmly established; cf Ps 93:1
it won’t be shaken.
He will judge all people fairly."
11Let heaven celebrate! Let the earth rejoice!
Let the sea and everything in it roar!
12Let the countryside and everything in it celebrate!
Then all the trees of the forest too
will shout out joyfully
13before the Lord because he is coming!
He is coming to establish justice on the earth!
He will establish justice in the world rightly.
He will establish justice among all people fairly.
