(96) When the house was built after the Captivity, a Song of David.
1 Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Sing to the Lord, bless his name: proclaim his salvation from day to day.
3 Publish his glory among the Gentiles, his wonderful works among all people.
4 For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is terrible above all gods.
5 For all the gods of the heathen are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.
6 Thanksgiving and beauty are before him: holiness and majesty are in his sanctuary.
7 Bring to the Lord, you° families of the Gentiles, bring to the Lord glory and honor.
8 Bring to the Lord the glory becoming his name: take offerings, and go into his courts.
9 Worship the Lord in his holy court: let all the earth tremble before him.
10 Say among the heathen, The Lord reigns: for he has established the world so that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people in righteousness.
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and the earth exult; let the sea be moved, and the fullness of it.
12 The plains shall rejoice, and all things in them: then shall all the trees of the wood exult before the presence of the Lord:
13 for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth; he shall judge the world in righteousness, and the people with his truth.
