Psalm 96 Bible in Basic English

A Song of Praise

96 1  O make a new song to the Lord; let all the earth make melody to the Lord. 2  Make songs to the Lord, blessing his name; give the good news of his salvation day by day. 3  Make clear his glory to the nations, and his wonders to all the peoples. 4  For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised; he is more to be feared than all other gods. 5  For all the gods of the nations are false gods; but the Lord made the heavens. 6  Honour and glory are before him: strong and fair is his holy place. 7  Give to the Lord, O you families of the peoples, give to the Lord glory and strength. 8  Give to the Lord the glory of his name; take with you an offering and come into his house. 9  O give worship to the Lord in holy robes; be in fear before him, all the earth.

10  Say among the nations, The Lord is King; yes, the world is ordered so that it may not be moved; he will be an upright judge of the peoples. 11  Let the heavens have joy and the earth be glad; let the sea be thundering with all its waters; 12  Let the field be glad, and everything which is in it; yes, let all the trees of the wood be sounding with joy, 13  Before the Lord, for he is come; he is come to be the judge of the earth; the earth will be judged in righteousness, and the peoples with unchanging faith.
