1 O sing
unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all
2 Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his
salvation from day to day.
3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders
among all people.
4 For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised:
he is to be feared above all gods.
5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the
Lord made the heavens.
6 Honour and majesty are before him: strength and
beauty are in his sanctuary.
7 Give unto the Lord, O ye kindreds of the people,
give unto the Lord glory and strength.
8 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name:
bring an offering, and come into his courts.
9 O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear
before him, all the earth.
10 Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the
world also shall be established that it shall not be
moved: he shall judge the people righteously.
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be
glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein:
then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
13 Before the Lord: for he cometh, for he cometh to
judge the earth: he shall judge the world with
righteousness, and the people with his truth.
Psalm 97 >
- The Book of David
The Book of Psalms which contains Psalm 96 is also referred to
as the Book of David. David reigned over Judah and Israel
was the second king of the united Kingdom of Israel. King
David is credited with the authorship of many of the Psalms
and the collection is therefore often referred to as the
Book of David.
