Psalm 96 International Standard Version (ISV)

Give Glory to the Lord

96 Sing a new song to the Lord!
    Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Sing to the Lord!
    Bless his name!
        Proclaim his deliverance every day!
Declare his glory among the nations
    and his awesome deeds among all the peoples!

For the Lord is great,
    and greatly to be praised;
        he is awesome above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
    but the Lord made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him;
    might and beauty are in his sanctuary.
Ascribe to the Lord, you families of peoples,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name,
    bring an offering and enter his courts!
Worship the Lord in holy splendor;
    tremble before him, all the earth.

10 Declare among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
    Indeed, he established the world so that it will not falter.
        He will judge people fairly.
11 The heavens will be glad
    and the earth will rejoice;
        even the sea and everything that fills it will roar.[a]

12 The field and all that is in it will rejoice;
    then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy
13 in the Lord’s presence,
because he is coming;
    indeed, he will come to judge the earth.
He will judge the world fairly
    and its people reliably.

Declare his glory among the nations,

12 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
    let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
13 Let all creation rejoice before the Lord, for he comes,
    he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
    and the peoples in his faithfulness.
