Psalm 96

Ascribe to Yahweh Glory and Strength

Sing to Yahweh a new song;
Sing to Yahweh, all the earth.
Sing to Yahweh, bless His name;
Proclaim good news of His salvation from day to day.
Recount His glory among the nations,
His wondrous deeds among all the peoples.
For great is Yahweh and greatly to be praised;
He is more fearsome than all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But Yahweh made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before Him,
Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.

Ascribe to Yahweh, O families of the peoples,
Ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength.
Ascribe to Yahweh the glory of His name;
Lift up an offering and come into His courts.
Worship Yahweh in the splendor of holiness;
Tremble before Him, all the earth.
Say among the nations, “Yahweh reigns;
Indeed, the world is established, it will not be shaken;
He will render justice to the peoples with equity.”

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
Let the sea roar, as well as its fullness;
Let the field exult, and all that is in it.
Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy
Before Yahweh, for He is coming,
For He is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
And the peoples in His faithfulness.
