Psalms 95, 97-99

Let Us Sing Songs of Praise

95:1 Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth;
the heights of the mountains are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture,
and the sheep of his hand.
Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah,
as on the day at Massah in the wilderness,
when your fathers put me to the test
and put me to the proof, though they had seen my work.
10 For forty years I loathed that generation
and said, “They are a people who go astray in their heart,
and they have not known my ways.”
11 Therefore I swore in my wrath,
“They shall not enter my rest.”

The Lord Reigns

97:1 The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice;
 let the many coastlands be glad!
Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
 righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him
 and burns up his adversaries all around.
His lightnings light up the world;
 the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
 before the Lord of all the earth.

The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
 and all the peoples see his glory.
All worshipers of images are put to shame,
 who make their boast in worthless idols;
 worship him, all you gods!

Zion hears and is glad,
 and the daughters of Judah rejoice,
 because of your judgments, O Lord.
For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth;
 you are exalted far above all gods.

10 O you who love the Lord, hate evil!
 He preserves the lives of his saints;
 he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light is sown [2] for the righteous,
 and joy for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
 and give thanks to his holy name!

Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord

A Psalm.

98:1 Oh sing to the Lord a new song,
 for he has done marvelous things!
His right hand and his holy arm
 have worked salvation for him.
The Lord has made known his salvation;
 he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness
 to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
 the salvation of our God.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
 break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
 with the lyre and the sound of melody!
With trumpets and the sound of the horn
 make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!

Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
 the world and those who dwell in it!
Let the rivers clap their hands;
 let the hills sing for joy together
before the Lord, for he comes
 to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
 and the peoples with equity.

The Lord Our God Is Holy

99:1 The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble!
 He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!
The Lord is great in Zion;
 he is exalted over all the peoples.
Let them praise your great and awesome name!
 Holy is he!
The King in his might loves justice. [1]
 You have established equity;
you have executed justice
 and righteousness in Jacob.
Exalt the Lord our God;
 worship at his footstool!
 Holy is he!

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
 Samuel also was among those who called upon his name.
 They called to the Lord, and he answered them.
In the pillar of the cloud he spoke to them;
 they kept his testimonies
 and the statute that he gave them.

Lord our God, you answered them;
 you were a forgiving God to them,
 but an avenger of their wrongdoings.
Exalt the Lord our God,
 and worship at his holy mountain;
 for the Lord our God is holy!
