Psalm 96 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
1 Sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
2 Sing to the Lord! Praise his name!
Day after day announce that the Lord saves his people.
3 Tell people about his glory.
Tell all the nations about his miracles.
4 The Lord is great!
He should be highly praised.
He should be feared more than all other gods
5 because all the gods of the nations are idols.
The Lord made the heavens.
6 Splendor and majesty are in his presence.
Strength and beauty are in his holy place.
7 Give to the Lord, you families of the nations.
Give to the Lord glory and power.
8 Give to the Lord the glory he deserves.
Bring an offering, and come into his courtyards.
9 Worship the Lord in his holy splendor.
Tremble in his presence, all the earth!
10 Say to the nations, “The Lord rules as king!”
The earth stands firm; it cannot be moved.
He will judge people fairly.
11 Let the heavens rejoice and the earth be glad.
Let the sea and everything in it roar like thunder.
12 Let the fields and everything in them rejoice.
Then all the trees in the forest will sing joyfully
13 in the Lord’s presence because he is coming.
He is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness
and its people with his truth.
