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.

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.
