Psalms 96

Yahweh the King Comes in Judgment
1Sing to#Or “concerning” Yahweh a new song;
sing to#Or “concerning” Yahweh, all the earth.
2Sing to#Or “concerning” Yahweh; bless his name.
Announce#Or “bring good news concerning” his salvation from day to day.
3Tell his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples.
4For Yahweh is great and very worthy of praise;
he is to be feared above all gods.
5For all the gods of the peoples are idols,#This word for idols suggests something worthless or insignificant
but Yahweh made the heavens.
6Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7Ascribe to Yahweh, you families of the peoples,
ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength.
8Ascribe to Yahweh the glory due his name;
bring an offering and come into his courts.
9Worship Yahweh in holy array;
tremble before him, all the earth.
10Say among the nations, “Yahweh is king!
Yes, the world is established so that it will not be moved.
He will judge the peoples fairly.”
11Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice.
Let the sea with#Hebrew “and” its fullness roar.
12Let the field with#Hebrew “and” all that is in it exult.
Then all the trees of the forests will sing for joy
13before Yahweh, for he is coming;
for he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
and the peoples with his faithfulness.
