Amplified Bible

Psalm 96

A Call to Worship the Lord the Righteous Judge.

1O sing to the Lord a new song;
Sing to the Lord, all the earth!

Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim good news of His salvation from day to day.

Declare His glory among the nations,
His marvelous works and wonderful deeds among all the peoples.

For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised;
He is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the peoples are [worthless, lifeless] idols,
But the Lord made the heavens.

Splendor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.


[a]Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

Ascribe to the Lord the glory of His name;
Bring an offering and come into His courts.

Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;
Tremble [in submissive wonder] before Him, all the earth.
10 
Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns;
Indeed, the world is firmly and securely established, it shall not be moved;
He will judge and rule the people with fairness.”

11 
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
Let the sea roar, and all the things it contains;
12 
Let the field be exultant, and all that is in it.
Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy
13 
Before the Lord, for He is coming,
For He is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness
And the peoples in His faithfulness.

Salme 96

Herren er jordens konge og dommer

1Syng en ny sang for Herren,
    lad hele jorden synge med.
Syng Herrens pris og lov hans navn,
    fortæl om hans frelse hver eneste dag.
Lad alle folk høre om hans vældige undere,
    fortæl om de forunderlige ting, han har gjort.
For Herren er stor, og æren er hans,
    ingen andre guder er værd at tilbede.
Andre folks guder er falske guder,
    men Herren har skabt både himlen og jorden.
Han udstråler kongelig værdighed,
    styrke og skønhed kommer fra hans nærvær.

Pris Herren, alle verdens folk,
    forstå hans herlighed og magt.
Giv Herren den ære, der tilkommer ham,
    bring jeres gaver og tilbed i hans tempel.
Tilbed Herren i helligt skrud,
    bøj knæ for ham, alle jordens folk.
10 Fortæl folkeslagene, at Herren er konge,
    han skabte jorden på et sikkert fundament,
        og han vil dømme alle folkeslag retfærdigt.
11 Lad himlen glæde sig og jorden juble,
    lad havene bruse i lovprisning,
12 lad marken med sin afgrøde juble,
    lad lovsangen suse i skovens træer,
13 for Herren kommer,
    han er på vej for at dømme jorden.
Han dømmer verden med retfærdighed,
    alle jordens folk får en fair behandling.
