Psalm 98 International Standard Version (ISV)

A psalm

Sing Praise to the King

98 Sing to the Lord a new song,
    for he has done awesome deeds!
His right hand and powerful[a] arm[b]
    have brought him victory.
The Lord has made his deliverance known;
    he has disclosed his justice before the nations.
He has remembered his gracious love;
    his faithfulness toward the house of Israel;
        all the ends of the earth saw our God’s deliverance.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
    Break forth into joyful songs of praise!
Sing praises to the Lord with a lyre—
    with a lyre and a melodious song!
With trumpets and the sound of a ram’s horn
    shout in the presence of the Lord, the king!

Let the sea and everything in it shout,[c]
    along with the world and its inhabitants;
let the rivers clap their hands in unison;
    and let the mountains sing for joy
in the Lord’s presence, who comes to judge the earth;
He’ll judge the world righteously;
    and its people fairly.

Psalm 98 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 98

A psalm.

Sing to the Lord a new song,
    for he has done marvelous things;
his right hand and his holy arm
    have worked salvation for him.
The Lord has made his salvation known
    and revealed his righteousness to the nations.
He has remembered his love
    and his faithfulness to Israel;
all the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation of our God.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth,
    burst into jubilant song with music;
make music to the Lord with the harp,
    with the harp and the sound of singing,
with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn
    shout for joy before the Lord, the King.

Let the sea resound, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it.
Let the rivers clap their hands,
    let the mountains sing together for joy;
let them sing before the Lord,
    for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
    and the peoples with equity.

Psalm 98 King James Version (KJV)

98 O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

The Lord hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.

He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

Sing unto the Lord with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.

With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King.

Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together

Before the Lord; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
