4 For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;z

5 For all the gods of the nations are idols,c
but the Lord made the heavens.d
6 Splendor and majestye are before him;
strength and gloryf are in his sanctuary.
7 Ascribe to the Lord,g all you families of nations,h
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
8 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
bring an offeringi and come into his courts.j
9 Worship the Lordk in the splendor of hisa holiness;l
tremblem before him, all the earth.n
10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.o”
The world is firmly established,p it cannot be moved;q
he will judger the peoples with equity.s
11 Let the heavens rejoice,t let the earth be glad;u
let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
12 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
let all the trees of the forestv sing for joy.w
13 Let all creation rejoice before the Lord, for he comes,
he comes to judgex the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousnessy
and the peoples in his faithfulness.z
