The Psalms

Psalm 98

The psalmist exhorts the Jews, 1-3, the Gentiles, 4-6, and all the creatures to praise God, 7-9.

1 [A Psalm.] O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things. His right hand and his holy arm has gotten him the victory.

2 The LORD has made his salvation known. His righteousness he has openly shown in the sight of the heathen.

3 He has remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

4 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth, make a loud noise, rejoice, and sing praise.

5 Sing to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and the voice of a psalm.

6 With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.

7 Let the sea roar and its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.

8 Let the floods clap their hands. Let the hills be joyful together,

9 Before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. With righteousness he will judge the world, and the people with equity.
