Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 96

上帝是至高的君王

1你們要向耶和華唱新歌,
普世都要向耶和華歌唱。
要向耶和華歌唱,稱頌祂的名,
天天傳揚祂的拯救之恩。
要在列國述說祂的榮耀,
在萬民中述說祂的奇妙作為。
因為耶和華無比偉大,
當受至高的頌揚;
祂超越一切神明,當受敬畏。
列邦的神明都是假的,
唯獨耶和華創造了諸天。
祂尊貴威嚴,
祂的聖所充滿能力和榮美。
萬族萬民啊,
要把榮耀和能力歸給耶和華,
歸給耶和華!
要把耶和華當得的榮耀歸給祂,
要帶著祭物到祂的院宇敬拜祂。
你們當在聖潔的耶和華面前俯伏敬拜,
大地要在祂面前戰抖。
10 要告訴列國:
「耶和華掌權,
祂使大地堅立不搖,
祂必公正地審判萬民。」
11 願天歡喜,願地快樂,
願海和其中的一切都歡呼澎湃。
12 願田野和其中的萬物都喜氣洋洋,
願林中的樹木都歡然讚美耶和華。
13 因為祂要來審判大地,
祂要按公義審判世界,
憑祂的信實審判萬民。

Psalm 96

Psalm 96

Sing a new song to the Lord.
    All you people of the earth, sing to the Lord.
Sing to the Lord. Praise him.
    Day after day tell about how he saves us.
Tell the nations about his glory.
    Tell all people about the wonderful things he has done.

The Lord is great. He is really worthy of praise.
    People should have respect for him as the greatest God of all.
All the gods of the nations are like their statues.
    They can’t do anything.
    But the Lord made the heavens.
Glory and majesty are all around him.
    Strength and glory can be seen in his temple.

Praise the Lord, all you nations.
    Praise the Lord for his glory and strength.
Praise the Lord for the glory that belongs to him.
    Bring an offering and come into the courtyards of his temple.
Worship the Lord because of his beauty and holiness.
    All you people of the earth, tremble when you are with him.

10 Say to the nations, “The Lord rules.”
    The world is firmly set in place. It can’t be moved.
    The Lord will judge the people of the world fairly.
11 Let the heavens be full of joy. Let the earth be glad.
    Let the ocean and everything in it roar.
12     Let the fields and everything in them be glad.
Let all the trees in the forest sing for joy.
13     Let all creation be full of joy in front of the Lord,
    because he is coming to judge the earth.
He will faithfully judge the people of the world
    in keeping with what is right.
