Psalm 96

Yahweh the King Comes in Judgment

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