The Message

Psalm 98

1Sing to God a brand-new song.
He’s made a world of wonders!

He rolled up his sleeves,
He set things right.

God made history with salvation,
He showed the world what he could do.

He remembered to love us, a bonus
To his dear family, Israel—indefatigable love.

The whole earth comes to attention.
Look—God’s work of salvation!

Shout your praises to God, everybody!
Let loose and sing! Strike up the band!

Round up an orchestra to play for God,
Add on a hundred-voice choir.

Feature trumpets and big trombones,
Fill the air with praises to King God.

Let the sea and its fish give a round of applause,
With everything living on earth joining in.

Let ocean breakers call out, “Encore!”
And mountains harmonize the finale—

A tribute to God when he comes,
When he comes to set the earth right.

He’ll straighten out the whole world,
He’ll put the world right, and everyone in it.

诗篇 98

颂扬上帝的拯救

一首诗歌。

1你们要向耶和华唱新歌,
因为祂的作为奇妙,
祂以右手和圣洁的臂膀施行拯救。
耶和华显明了祂的拯救之恩,
向列邦彰显了祂的公义。
祂没有忘记以慈爱和信实对待以色列人,
普天下都看见我们的上帝拯救了我们。
普世要向耶和华欢呼,
欢欢喜喜地高声颂扬。
要弹奏竖琴歌颂耶和华,
伴着琴声唱诗歌颂祂。
要伴随着号角声在大君王耶和华面前欢呼。
大海和海中的一切要颂扬,
大地和地上的一切要欢呼。
江河要鼓掌,
群山要在耶和华面前齐声欢唱,
因为祂要来审判大地,
要公义地审判世界,
公正地审判万民。
