Amplified Bible

Psalm 98

A Call to Praise the Lord for His Righteousness.

A [a]Psalm.

1O sing to the Lord a new song,
For He has done marvelous and wonderful things;
His right hand and His holy arm have [b]gained the victory for Him.

The Lord has made known His salvation;
He has [openly] revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations.

He has [graciously] remembered His lovingkindness and His faithfulness to the house of Israel;
All the ends of the earth have witnessed the salvation of our God.


Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth;
Shout [in jubilation] and sing for joy and sing praises.

Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
With the lyre and the sound of melody.

With trumpets and the sound of the horn
Shout with joy before the King, the Lord.


Let the sea thunder and roar, and all the things it contains,
The world and those who dwell in it.

Let the rivers clap their hands;
Let the mountains sing together for joy and delight

Before the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth;
He will judge the world with righteousness
And the peoples with fairness.

Psalm 98

A psalm.

Sing a new song to the Lord.
    He has done wonderful things.
By the power of his right hand and his holy arm
    he has saved his people.
The Lord has made known his power to save.
    He has shown the nations that he does what is right.
He has shown his faithful love
    to the people of Israel.
People from one end of the earth to the other
    have seen that our God has saved us.

Shout for joy to the Lord, everyone on earth.
    Burst into joyful songs and make music.
Make music to the Lord with the harp.
    Sing and make music with the harp.
Blow the trumpets. Give a blast on the ram’s horn.
    Shout for joy to the Lord. He is the King.

Let the ocean and everything in it roar.
    Let the world and all who live in it shout.
Let the rivers clap their hands.
    Let the mountains sing together with joy.
Let them sing to the Lord,
    because he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the nations of the world
    in keeping with what is right and fair.
