Psalm 96

1Oh sing unto Jehovah a new song:

Sing unto Jehovah, all the earth.

2Sing unto Jehovah, bless his name;

Show forth his salvation from day to day.

3Declare his glory among the nations,

His marvellous works among all the peoples.

4For great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised:

He is to be feared above all gods.

5For all the gods of the peoples are idols;

But Jehovah made the heavens.

6Honor and majesty are before him:

Strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

7Ascribe unto Jehovah, ye kindreds of the peoples,

Ascribe unto Jehovah glory and strength.

8Ascribe unto Jehovah the glory due unto his name:

Bring an offering, and come into his courts.

9Oh worship Jehovah in holy array:

Tremble before him, all the earth.

10Say among the nations, Jehovah reigneth:

The world also is established that it cannot be moved:

He will judge the peoples with equity

11Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;

Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof;

12Let the field exult, and all that is therein;

Then shall all the trees of the wood sing for joy

13Before Jehovah; for he cometh,

For he cometh to judge the earth:

He will judge the world with righteousness,

And the peoples with his truth.


About American Standard Version

The ASV has long been regarded by many scholars as the most literal English translation since the King James Version—maybe the most literal translation ever. This has made the translation very popular for careful English Bible study, but not for ease of reading. While the KJV was translated entirely from “western manuscripts,” the ASV 1901 was influenced also by the older “eastern manuscripts” that form the basis for most of our modern English translations. Because the ASV 1901 is very difficult to find in print, Logos is pleased to be able to preserve and distribute this significant work. This is an excellent choice for comparative English study.
