Psalm 98

A Psalm. 1Sing to TheIAM a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand, and his holy arm, have worked salvation for him. 2TheIAM has made known his salvation. He has openly shown his righteousness in the sight of the nations. 3He has remembered his loving kindness and his faithfulness toward the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. 4Make a joyful noise to TheIAM, all the earth! Burst out and sing for joy, yes, sing praises! 5Sing praises to TheIAM with the harp, with the harp and the voice of melody. 6With trumpets and sound of the ram's horn, make a joyful noise before the King, TheIAM. 7Let the sea roar with its fullness; the world, and those who dwell therein. 8Let the rivers clap their hands. Let the mountains sing for joy together. 9Let them sing before TheIAM, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.
