Psalm 98*

The Coming of God

1A psalm.


Sing a new song to the Lord,

for he has done marvelous deeds.a

His right hand and holy arm

have won the victory.*b

2The Lord has made his victory known;

has revealed his triumph in the sight of the nations,

3He has remembered his mercy and faithfulness

toward the house of Israel.

All the ends of the earth have seen

the victory of our God.


4Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth;

break into song; sing praise.

5Sing praise to the Lord with the lyre,

with the lyre and melodious song.

6With trumpets and the sound of the horn

shout with joy to the King, the Lord.c


7Let the sea and what fills it resound,d

the world and those who dwell there.

8Let the rivers clap their hands,

the mountains shout with them for joy,e

9fBefore the Lord who comes,

who comes to govern the earth,g

To govern the world with justice

and the peoples with fairness.
