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