The Message

Psalm 96

11-2 Sing God a brand-new song!
Earth and everyone in it, sing!
Sing to Godworship God!

2-3 Shout the news of his victory from sea to sea,
Take the news of his glory to the lost,
News of his wonders to one and all!

4-5 For God is great, and worth a thousand Hallelujahs.
His terrible beauty makes the gods look cheap;
Pagan gods are mere tatters and rags.

5-6 God made the heavens—
Royal splendor radiates from him,
A powerful beauty sets him apart.

Bravo, God, Bravo!
Everyone join in the great shout: Encore!
In awe before the beauty, in awe before the might.

8-9 Bring gifts and celebrate,
Bow before the beauty of God,
Then to your knees—everyone worship!

10 Get out the message—God Rules!
He put the world on a firm foundation;
He treats everyone fair and square.

11 Let’s hear it from Sky,
With Earth joining in,
And a huge round of applause from Sea.

12 Let Wilderness turn cartwheels,
Animals, come dance,
Put every tree of the forest in the choir—

13 An extravaganza before God as he comes,
As he comes to set everything right on earth,
Set everything right, treat everyone fair.

诗篇 96

上帝是至高的君王

1你们要向耶和华唱新歌,
普世都要向耶和华歌唱。
要向耶和华歌唱,称颂祂的名,
天天传扬祂的拯救之恩。
要在列国述说祂的荣耀,
在万民中述说祂的奇妙作为。
因为耶和华无比伟大,
当受至高的颂扬;
祂超越一切神明,当受敬畏。
列邦的神明都是假的,
唯独耶和华创造了诸天。
祂尊贵威严,
祂的圣所充满能力和荣美。
万族万民啊,
要把荣耀和能力归给耶和华,
归给耶和华!
要把耶和华当得的荣耀归给祂,
要带着祭物到祂的院宇敬拜祂。
你们当在圣洁的耶和华面前俯伏敬拜,
大地要在祂面前战抖。
10 要告诉列国:
“耶和华掌权,
祂使大地坚立不摇,
祂必公正地审判万民。”
11 愿天欢喜,愿地快乐,
愿海和其中的一切都欢呼澎湃。
12 愿田野和其中的万物都喜气洋洋,
愿林中的树木都欢然赞美耶和华。
13 因为祂要来审判大地,
祂要按公义审判世界,
凭祂的信实审判万民。
