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 Judgement


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 marvellous 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 Honour 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 splendour;
   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.

Psalm 97

The Glory of God’s Reign


1 The Lord is king! Let the earth rejoice;
   let the many coastlands be glad!
2 Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
   righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him,
   and consumes his adversaries on every side.
4 His lightnings light up the world;
   the earth sees and trembles.
5 The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
   before the Lord of all the earth.


6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness;
   and all the peoples behold his glory.
7 All worshippers of images are put to shame,
   those who make their boast in worthless idols;
   all gods bow down before him.
8 Zion hears and is glad,
   and the towns* of Judah rejoice,
   because of your judgements, O God.
9 For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth;
   you are exalted far above all gods.


10 The Lord loves those who hate* evil;
   he guards the lives of his faithful;
   he rescues them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light dawns* for the righteous,
   and joy for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
   and give thanks to his holy name!

Psalm 98

Praise the Judge of the World

A Psalm.
1 O sing to the Lord a new song,
   for he has done marvellous things.
His right hand and his holy arm
   have gained him victory.
2 The Lord has made known his victory;
   he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations.
3 He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness
   to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
   the victory of our God.


4 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
   break forth into joyous song and sing praises.
5 Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
   with the lyre and the sound of melody.
6 With trumpets and the sound of the horn
   make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord.


7 Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
   the world and those who live in it.
8 Let the floods clap their hands;
   let the hills sing together for joy
9 at the presence of the Lord, for he is coming
   to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
   and the peoples with equity.

Psalm 99

Praise to God for His Holiness


1 The Lord is king; let the peoples tremble!
   He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!
2 The Lord is great in Zion;
   he is exalted over all the peoples.
3 Let them praise your great and awesome name.
   Holy is he!
4 Mighty King,* lover of justice,
   you have established equity;
you have executed justice
   and righteousness in Jacob.
5 Extol the Lord our God;
   worship at his footstool.
   Holy is he!


6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
   Samuel also was among those who called on his name.
   They cried to the Lord, and he answered them.
7 He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud;
   they kept his decrees,
   and the statutes that he gave them.


8Lord our God, you answered them;
   you were a forgiving God to them,
   but an avenger of their wrongdoings.
9 Extol the Lord our God,
   and worship at his holy mountain;
   for the Lord our God is holy.

Psalm 100

All Lands Summoned to Praise God

A Psalm of thanksgiving.
1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
2   Worship the Lord with gladness;
   come into his presence with singing.


3 Know that the Lord is God.
   It is he that made us, and we are his;*
   we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.


4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
   and his courts with praise.
   Give thanks to him, bless his name.


5 For the Lord is good;
   his steadfast love endures for ever,
   and his faithfulness to all generations.

Psalm 101

A Sovereign’s Pledge of Integrity and Justice

Of David. A Psalm.
1 I will sing of loyalty and of justice;
   to you, O Lord, I will sing.
2 I will study the way that is blameless.
   When shall I attain it?


I will walk with integrity of heart
   within my house;
3 I will not set before my eyes
   anything that is base.


I hate the work of those who fall away;
   it shall not cling to me.
4 Perverseness of heart shall be far from me;
   I will know nothing of evil.


5 One who secretly slanders a neighbour
   I will destroy.
A haughty look and an arrogant heart
   I will not tolerate.


6 I will look with favour on the faithful in the land,
   so that they may live with me;
whoever walks in the way that is blameless
   shall minister to me.


7 No one who practises deceit
   shall remain in my house;
no one who utters lies
   shall continue in my presence.


8 Morning by morning I will destroy
   all the wicked in the land,
cutting off all evildoers
   from the city of the Lord.
