Read Psalm 98


Read Psalm 98

Sing a new song to the Lord;
    he has done wonderful things!
By his own power and holy strength
    he has won the victory.
2 The Lord announced his victory;
    he made his saving power known to the nations.
3 He kept his promise to the people of Israel
    with loyalty and constant love for them.
All people everywhere have seen the victory of our God.

4 Sing for joy to the Lord, all the earth;
    praise him with songs and shouts of joy!
5 Sing praises to the Lord!
    Play music on the harps!
6 Blow trumpets and horns,
    and shout for joy to the Lord, our king.

7 Roar, sea, and every creature in you;
    sing, earth, and all who live on you!
8 Clap your hands, you rivers;
    you hills, sing together with joy before the Lord,
9     because he comes to rule the earth.
He will rule the peoples of the world
    with justice and fairness.

Psalm 98:1 HEBREW TITLE: A psalm.
Good News Translation (GNT)

I love the Psalmist's imagination: "Roar, sea and every creature in you..." As he imagines every corner of the earth's excitement at the hope of the coming of the Kingdom of God.


Lord you never forget us.  Help me to trust you for the coming of your Kingdom.
