Psalm 96 – (Emu Music)

The New Cloverdale Psalter (2019 Update of 1535 Original

“Psalm 96”

O sing unto the LORD a new song; *
sing unto the LORD, all the whole earth.
2 Sing unto the LORD and praise his Name; *
tell of his salvation from day to day.
3 Declare his honor to the nations, *
and his wonders to all peoples.
4 For the LORD is great, and highly to be praised; *
he is more to be feared than all gods.
5 As for all the gods of the nations, they are but idols; *
but it is the LORD who made the heavens.
6 Glory and majesty are before him; *
power and honor are in his sanctuary.

7 Ascribe unto the LORD, O you families of the peoples, *
ascribe unto the LORD worship and power.
8 Ascribe unto the LORD the honor due unto his Name; *
bring offerings and come into his courts.
9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness; *
let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
10 Tell it out among the nations, “The LORD is King; *
it is he who has made the world so firm that it cannot be moved; he shall judge the peoples
righteously.”

11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; *
let the sea make a noise, and all that is therein.
12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it; *
then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the LORD.
13 For he comes, for he comes to judge the earth, *
and with righteousness to judge the world, and the peoples with his truth.

Consider:

Tell it out among the nations, “The LORD is King;
it is he who has made the world so firm that it cannot be moved;
he shall judge the peoples righteously.”
(Psalm 96:10)

This is the best news that can be given to the nations. Society is safe where God is king, no revolutions shall convulse his empire, no invasions shall disturb his kingdom.

A settled government is essential to national prosperity, the reign of the god of truth and righteousness will promote this to the highest degree. Sin has shaken the world, the reign of Jesus will set it fast again upon sure foundations.

Prayer

+ Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen

+ O God, you made us in your own image, and you have redeemed us through your Son Jesus Christ: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

+ Hasten, O Father, the coming of your kingdom; and grant that we your servants, who now live by faith, may with joy behold your Son at his coming in glorious majesty; even Jesus Christ, our only Mediator and Advocate. Amen.
