Psalms 96

Praise for God’s Glory
1Sing to the Lord a new song.
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2Sing to the Lord and praise his name.
Every day tell how he saves us.
3Tell the nations of his glory.
Tell all peoples the miracles he does.
4The Lord is great; he should be praised.
He should be honored more than all the gods.
5All the gods of the nations are only idols.
But the Lord made the skies.
6The Lord has glory and majesty.
He has power and beauty in his Temple.
7Praise the Lord, all nations on earth.
Praise the Lord’s glory and power.
8Praise the glory of the Lord’s name.
Bring an offering and come into his Temple courtyards.
9Worship the Lord because he is holy.
The whole earth should tremble before the Lord.
10Tell the nations, “The Lord is king.”
The earth is set, and it cannot be moved.
He will judge the people fairly.
11Let the skies rejoice and the earth be glad.
Let the sea and everything in it shout.
12Let the fields and everything in them show their joy.
Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy.
13They will sing before the Lord because he is coming.
He is coming to judge the world.
He will judge the world with fairness
and the nations with truth.
