Psalm 95

A Call to Worship and Obedience

1

O come, let us sing to the Lord;

let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

2

Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;

let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

3

For the Lord is a great God,

and a great King above all gods.

4

In his hand are the depths of the earth;

the heights of the mountains are his also.

5

The sea is his, for he made it,

and the dry land, which his hands have formed.

 

6

O come, let us worship and bow down,

let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

7

For he is our God,

and we are the people of his pasture,

and the sheep of his hand.

 

O that today you would listen to his voice!

8

Do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah,

as on the day at Massah in the wilderness,

9

when your ancestors tested me,

and put me to the proof, though they had seen my work.

10

For forty years I loathed that generation

and said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray,

and they do not regard my ways.”

11

Therefore in my anger I swore,

“They shall not enter my rest.”

Psalm 96

Praise to God Who Comes in Judgment

1

O sing to the Lord a new song;

sing to the Lord, all the earth.

2

Sing to the Lord, bless his name;

tell of his salvation from day to day.

3

Declare his glory among the nations,

his marvelous works among all the peoples.

4

For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;

he is to be revered above all gods.

5

For all the gods of the peoples are idols,

but the Lord made the heavens.

6

Honor and majesty are before him;

strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

 

7

Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,

ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

8

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;

bring an offering, and come into his courts.

9

Worship the Lord in holy splendor;

tremble before him, all the earth.

 

10

Say among the nations, “The Lord is king!

The world is firmly established; it shall never be moved.

He will judge the peoples with equity.”

11

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;

let the sea roar, and all that fills it;

12

let the field exult, and everything in it.

Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy

13

before the Lord; for he is coming,

for he is coming to judge the earth.

He will judge the world with righteousness,

and the peoples with his truth.
