A Call to Worship the Lord the Righteous Judge.
1 aSing to the Lord a bnew song;
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
aProclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.
3 Tell of aHis glory among the nations,
His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.
4 For agreat is the Lord and bgreatly to be praised;
He is to be cfeared dabove all gods.
5 For aall the gods of the peoples are 1idols,
But bthe Lord made the heavens.
6 aSplendor and majesty are before Him,
Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.
7 1Ascribe to the Lord, O afamilies of the peoples,
1bAscribe to the Lord glory and strength.
8 1Ascribe to the Lord the aglory of His name;
Bring an 2boffering and come into His courts.
9 aWorship the Lord in 1holy attire;
bTremble before Him, all the earth.
10 Say among the nations, “aThe Lord reigns;
Indeed, the aworld is firmly established, it will not be moved;
He will bjudge the peoples with 1equity.”
11 Let the aheavens be glad, and let the bearth rejoice;
Let cthe sea 1roar, and 2all it contains;
12 Let the afield exult, and all that is in it.
Then all the btrees of the forest will sing for joy
13 Before the Lord, afor He is coming,
For He is coming to judge the earth.
bHe will judge the world in righteousness
And the peoples in His faithfulness.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
