9 Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth.
9 O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.
9 Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;
9 Bow before the beauty of God, Then to your knees - everyone worship!
9 Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.
9 Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor. Let all the earth tremble before him.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 96:9
Commentary on Psalm 96:1-9
(Read Psalm 96:1-9)
When Christ finished his work on earth, and was received into his glory in heaven, the church began to sing a new song unto him, and to bless his name. His apostles and evangelists showed forth his salvation among the heathen, his wonders among all people. All the earth is here summoned to worship the Lord. We must worship him in the beauty of holiness, as God in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself. Glorious things are said of him, both as motives to praise and matter of praise.
