1 Chronicles 16:25-34

25 For 1great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; He also is 2to be feared above all gods.
26 For all the gods of the peoples are 3idols, 4But the LORD made the heavens.
27 Splendor and majesty are before Him, Strength and joy are in His place.
28 Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, Ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
29 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come before Him; 5Worship the LORD in holy array.
30 Tremble before * Him, all the earth; Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
31 6Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; And let them say among the nations, "7The LORD reigns."
32 8Let the sea roar, and all it contains; Let the field exult, and all that is in it.
33 Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before * the LORD; For He is coming to judge the earth.
34 9O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
