Psalm 98

A psalm.

Sing to the Lord(A) a new song,(B)
    for he has done marvelous things;(C)
his right hand(D) and his holy arm(E)
    have worked salvation(F) for him.
The Lord has made his salvation known(G)
    and revealed his righteousness(H) to the nations.(I)
He has remembered(J) his love
    and his faithfulness to Israel;
all the ends of the earth(K) have seen
    the salvation of our God.(L)

Shout for joy(M) to the Lord, all the earth,
    burst into jubilant song with music;
make music to the Lord with the harp,(N)
    with the harp and the sound of singing,(O)
with trumpets(P) and the blast of the ram’s horn(Q)
    shout for joy(R) before the Lord, the King.(S)

Let the sea(T) resound, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it.(U)
Let the rivers clap their hands,(V)
    let the mountains(W) 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.(X)

Psalm 99

The Lord reigns,(Y)
    let the nations tremble;(Z)
he sits enthroned(AA) between the cherubim,(AB)
    let the earth shake.
Great is the Lord(AC) in Zion;(AD)
    he is exalted(AE) over all the nations.
Let them praise(AF) your great and awesome name(AG)
    he is holy.(AH)

The King(AI) is mighty, he loves justice(AJ)
    you have established equity;(AK)
in Jacob you have done
    what is just and right.(AL)
Exalt(AM) the Lord our God
    and worship at his footstool;
    he is holy.

Moses(AN) and Aaron(AO) were among his priests,
    Samuel(AP) was among those who called on his name;
they called on the Lord
    and he answered(AQ) them.
He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;(AR)
    they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.

Lord our God,
    you answered them;
you were to Israel a forgiving God,(AS)
    though you punished(AT) their misdeeds.[a]
Exalt the Lord our God
    and worship at his holy mountain,
    for the Lord our God is holy.
