New International Reader's Version

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.

Zabbuli 96

1Muyimbire Mukama oluyimba oluggya;
    muyimbire Mukama mmwe ensi yonna.
Muyimbire Mukama; mutendereze erinnya lye,
    mulangirire obulokozi bwe buli lukya.
Mutende ekitiibwa kye mu mawanga gonna,
    eby’amagero bye mubimanyise abantu bonna.

Kubanga Mukama mukulu era asaanira nnyo okutenderezebwa;
    asaana okutiibwa okusinga bakatonda bonna.
Kubanga bakatonda bonna abakolebwa abantu bifaananyi bufaananyi;
    naye Mukama ye yakola eggulu.
Ekitiibwa n’obukulu bimwetooloola;
    amaanyi n’obulungi biri mu nnyumba ye entukuvu.

Mugulumize Mukama mmwe ebika eby’amawanga byonna;
    mutende ekitiibwa kya Mukama awamu n’amaanyi ge.
Mugulumize Mukama mu ngeri esaanira erinnya lye;
    muleete ekiweebwayo mujje mu mbuga ze.
Musinze Mukama mu kitiibwa eky’obutuukirivu bwe.
    Ensi yonna esinze Mukama n’okukankana.
10 Mutegeeze amawanga gonna nti Mukama y’afuga.
    Ensi nnywevu, tewali asobola kuginyeenyaako;
    Mukama aliramula abantu mu bwenkanya.

11 Kale eggulu lisanyuke n’ensi ejaguze;
    ennyanja eyire ne byonna ebigirimu.
12     Ennimiro n’ebirime ebizirimu bijaguze;
n’emiti gyonna egy’omu kibira nagyo gimutendereze n’ennyimba ez’essanyu.
13     Kubanga Mukama ajja;
    ajja okusalira ensi omusango.
Mukama aliramula ensi mu butuukirivu,
    n’abantu bonna abalamule mu mazima.
