Psalm 95

Come,(A) let us sing for joy(B) to the Lord;
    let us shout aloud(C) to the Rock(D) of our salvation.
Let us come before him(E) with thanksgiving(F)
    and extol him with music(G) and song.

For the Lord is the great God,(H)
    the great King(I) above all gods.(J)
In his hand are the depths of the earth,(K)
    and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it,
    and his hands formed the dry land.(L)

Come, let us bow down(M) in worship,(N)
    let us kneel(O) before the Lord our Maker;(P)
for he is our God
    and we are the people of his pasture,(Q)
    the flock under his care.

Today, if only you would hear his voice,
“Do not harden your hearts(R) as you did at Meribah,[a](S)
    as you did that day at Massah[b] in the wilderness,(T)
where your ancestors tested(U) me;
    they tried me, though they had seen what I did.
10 For forty years(V) I was angry with that generation;
    I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray,(W)
    and they have not known my ways.’(X)
11 So I declared on oath(Y) in my anger,
    ‘They shall never enter my rest.’”(Z)

Psalm 96(AA)

Sing to the Lord(AB) a new song;(AC)
    sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, praise his name;(AD)
    proclaim his salvation(AE) day after day.
Declare his glory(AF) among the nations,
    his marvelous deeds(AG) among all peoples.

For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;(AH)
    he is to be feared(AI) above all gods.(AJ)
For all the gods of the nations are idols,(AK)
    but the Lord made the heavens.(AL)
Splendor and majesty(AM) are before him;
    strength and glory(AN) are in his sanctuary.

Ascribe to the Lord,(AO) all you families of nations,(AP)
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    bring an offering(AQ) and come into his courts.(AR)
Worship the Lord(AS) in the splendor of his[c] holiness;(AT)
    tremble(AU) before him, all the earth.(AV)
10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.(AW)
    The world is firmly established,(AX) it cannot be moved;(AY)
    he will judge(AZ) the peoples with equity.(BA)

11 Let the heavens rejoice,(BB) let the earth be glad;(BC)
    let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
12 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
    let all the trees of the forest(BD) sing for joy.(BE)
13 Let all creation rejoice before the Lord, for he comes,
    he comes to judge(BF) the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness(BG)
    and the peoples in his faithfulness.(BH)
