A Call to Praise the Lord for His Righteousness.
98 Sing a new song to the Lord,
For He has done wonderful things,
His right hand and His holy arm have [a]gained the victory for Him.
2 The Lord has made His salvation known;
He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations.
3 He has remembered His graciousness and His faithfulness to the house of Israel;
All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4 Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth;
Be cheerful and sing for joy and sing praises.
5 Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
With the lyre and the [b]sound of melody.
6 With trumpets and the sound of the horn
Shout joyfully before the King, the Lord.
7 May the sea roar and [c]all it contains,
The world and those who dwell in it.
8 May the rivers clap their hands,
May the mountains sing together for joy
9 Before the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth;
He will judge the world with righteousness
And the peoples with fairness.
