Psalms 96:1-3

Psalm 96

96:1 Sing to the Lord a new song!

Sing to the Lord, all the earth!

96:2 Sing to the Lord! Praise his name!

Announce every day how he delivers!

96:3 Tell the nations about his splendor!

Tell all the nations about his amazing deeds!

sn Psalm 96. The psalmist summons everyone to praise the Lord, the sovereign creator of the world who preserves and promotes justice in the earth.

sn A new song is appropriate because the Lord is constantly intervening in the world as its just king. See also Pss 33:3; 40:3; 98:1.

tn Heb “announce from day to day his deliverance.”

tn The verb “tell” is understood by ellipsis (note the preceding line).
