98 1 An earnest exhortation to all creatures to praise the Lord for his power, mercy and fidelity in his promise by Christ, 10 by whom he hath communicated his salvation to all nations.

A Psalm.

Sing [a]unto the Lord a new song: for he hath done marvelous things: (A)his right hand, and his holy [b]arm have gotten him the victory.

The Lord declared his [c]salvation: his righteousness hath he revealed in the sight of the nations.

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

All the earth, sing ye loud unto the Lord: cry out and rejoice, and sing praises.

Sing praise to the Lord upon the harp, even upon the harp with a singing voice.

With [e]shalms and sound of trumpets sing loud before the Lord the king.

Let the sea roar, and all that therein is, the world, and they that dwell therein.

Let the floods clap their hands, and let the mountains rejoice together,

Before the Lord: for he is come to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world: and the people with equity.
