1Sing a new song to the Lord; sing to the Lord, all the earth. 2Sing to the Lord, praise His name; proclaim His salvation from day to day. 3Declare His glory among the nations, His wonderful works among all peoples. 4For the Lord is great and is highly praised; He is feared above all gods. 5For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but the Lord made the heavens. 6Splendor and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His sanctuary. 7Ascribe to the Lord, you families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. 8Ascribe to the Lord the glory of His name; bring an offering and enter His courts. 9Worship the Lord in the splendor of [His] holiness; tremble before Him, all the earth. 10Say among the nations: "The Lord reigns. The world is firmly established; it cannot be shaken. He judges the peoples fairly." 11Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice; let the sea and all that fills it resound. 12Let the fields and everything in them exult. Then all the trees of the forest will shout for joy 13before the Lord, 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.
1The Lord reigns! Let the earth rejoice; let the many coasts and islands be glad. 2Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. 3Fire goes before Him and burns up His foes on every side. 4His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles. 5The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the Lord - at the presence of the Lord of all the earth. 6The heavens proclaim His righteousness; all the peoples see His glory. 7All who serve carved images, those who boast in idols, will be put to shame. All the gods must worship Him. 8Zion hears and is glad, and the towns of Judah rejoice because of Your judgments, Lord. 9For You, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth; You are exalted above all the gods. 10You who love the Lord, hate evil! He protects the lives of His godly ones; He rescues them from the hand of the wicked. 11Light dawns for the righteous, gladness for the upright in heart. 12Be glad in the Lord, you righteous ones, and praise His holy name.
1Sing a new song to the Lord, for He has performed wonders; His right hand and holy arm have won Him victory. 2The Lord has made His victory known; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations. 3He has remembered His love and faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen our God's victory. 4Shout to the Lord, all the earth; be jubilant, shout for joy, and sing. 5Sing to the Lord with the lyre, with the lyre and melodious song. 6With trumpets and the blast of the ram's horn shout triumphantly in the presence of the Lord, our King. 7Let the sea and all that fills it, the world and those who live in it, resound. 8Let the rivers clap their hands; let the mountains shout together for joy 9before the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world righteously and the peoples fairly.
1The Lord reigns! Let the peoples tremble. He is enthroned above the cherubim. Let the earth quake. 2The Lord is great in Zion; He is exalted above all the peoples. 3Let them praise Your great and awe-inspiring name. He is holy. 4The mighty King loves justice. You have established fairness; You have administered justice and righteousness in Jacob. 5Exalt the Lord our God; bow in worship at His footstool. He is holy. 6Moses and Aaron were among His priests; Samuel also was among those calling on His name. They called to the Lord, and He answered them. 7He spoke to them in a pillar of cloud; they kept His decrees and the statutes He gave them. 8Lord our God, You answered them. You were a God who forgave them, but punished their misdeeds. 9Exalt the Lord our God; bow in worship at His holy mountain, for the Lord our God is holy.
1Shout triumphantly to the Lord, all the earth. 2Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. 3Acknowledge that the Lord is God. He made us, and we are His - His people, the sheep of His pasture. 4Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name. 5For the Lord is good, and His love is eternal; His faithfulness endures through all generations.
1I will sing of faithful love and justice; I will sing praise to You, Lord. 2I will pay attention to the way of integrity. When will You come to me? I will live with integrity of heart in my house. 3I will not set anything godless before my eyes. I hate the doing of transgression; it will not cling to me. 4A devious heart will be far from me; I will not be involved with evil. 5I will destroy anyone who secretly slanders his neighbor; I cannot tolerate anyone with haughty eyes or an arrogant heart. 6My eyes [favor] the faithful of the land so that they may sit down with me. The one who follows the way of integrity may serve me. 7No one who acts deceitfully will live in my palace; no one who tells lies will remain in my presence. 8Every morning I will destroy all the wicked of the land, eliminating all evildoers from the Lord's city.
1Lord, hear my prayer; let my cry for help come before You. 2Do not hide Your face from me in my day of trouble. Listen closely to me; answer me quickly when I call. 3For my days vanish like smoke, and my bones burn like a furnace. 4My heart is afflicted, withered like grass; I even forget to eat my food. 5Because of the sound of my groaning, my flesh sticks to my bones. 6I am like a desert owl, like an owl among the ruins. 7I stay awake; I am like a solitary bird on a roof. 8My enemies taunt me all day long; they ridicule and curse me. 9I eat ashes like bread and mingle my drinks with tears 10because of Your indignation and wrath; for You have picked me up and thrown me aside. 11My days are like a lengthening shadow, and I wither away like grass. 12But You, Lord, are enthroned forever; Your fame [endures] to all generations. 13You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her- the appointed time has come. 14For Your servants take delight in its stones and favor its dust. 15Then the nations will fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth Your glory, 16for the Lord will rebuild Zion; He will appear in His glory. 17He will pay attention to the prayer of the destitute and will not despise their prayer. 18This will be written for a later generation, and a newly created people will praise the Lord: 19He looked down from His holy heights- the Lord gazed out from heaven to earth- 20to hear a prisoner's groaning, to set free those condemned to die, 21so that they might declare the name of the Lord in Zion and His praise in Jerusalem, 22when peoples and kingdoms are assembled to serve the Lord. 23He has broken my strength in midcourse; He has shortened my days. 24I say: "My God, do not take me in the middle of my life! Your years continue through all generations. 25Long ago You established the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. 26They will perish, but You will endure; all of them will wear out like clothing. You will change them like a garment, and they will pass away. 27But You are the same, and Your years will never end. 28Your servants' children will dwell [securely], and their offspring will be established before You."
