King James Version

Psalm 96

1O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth.

Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.

For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.

Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

Give unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength.

Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.

O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.

10 Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.

11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.

12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice

13 Before the Lord: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.

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.
