Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  Sing to Hashem a new song, sing to Hashem, all the earth.

א  שִׁירוּ לַיהֹוָה שִׁיר חָדָשׁ שִׁירוּ לַיהֹוָה כָּל־הָאָרֶץ׃

2  Sing to Hashem, bless His name, proclaim His victory day after day.

ב  שִׁירוּ לַיהֹוָה בָּרֲכוּ שְׁמוֹ בַּשְּׂרוּ מִיּוֹם־לְיוֹם יְשׁוּעָתוֹ׃

3  Tell of His glory among the nations, His wondrous deeds, among all peoples.

sa-p’-RU va-go-YIM k’-vo-DO b’-khol ha-a-MEEM nif-l’-o-TAV

ג  סַפְּרוּ בַגּוֹיִם כְּבוֹדוֹ בְּכָל־הָעַמִּים נִפְלְאוֹתָיו׃

96:3   Among all peoples

The Land of Israel is the home of the Jewish people, and it is also the place from which the message of Hashem will go out to all the nations of the world. Psalm 96 charges each individual to sing praises of God. Just as the heavens and earth, forests and fields sing a song of praise to Him, so too, all people should declare Hashem as king and acknowledge His just dominion. The psalm concludes with God’s justice, since only through His absolute judgment will the nations of the world recognize His ways.2 comments

4  For Hashem is great and much acclaimed, He is held in awe by all divine beings.

ד  כִּי גָדוֹל יְהֹוָה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד נוֹרָא הוּא עַל־כָּל־אֱלֹהִים׃

5  All the gods of the peoples are mere idols, but Hashem made the heavens.

ה  כִּי כָּל־אֱלֹהֵי הָעַמִּים אֱלִילִים וַיהֹוָה שָׁמַיִם עָשָׂה׃

6  Glory and majesty are before Him; strength and splendor are in His temple.

ו  הוֹד־וְהָדָר לְפָנָיו עֹז וְתִפְאֶרֶת בְּמִקְדָּשׁוֹ׃

7  Ascribe to Hashem, O families of the peoples, ascribe to Hashem glory and strength.

ז  הָבוּ לַיהֹוָה מִשְׁפְּחוֹת עַמִּים הָבוּ לַיהֹוָה כָּבוֹד וָעֹז׃

8  Ascribe to Hashem the glory of His name, bring tribute and enter His courts.

ח  הָבוּ לַיהֹוָה כְּבוֹד שְׁמוֹ שְׂאוּ־מִנְחָה וּבֹאוּ לְחַצְרוֹתָיו׃

9  Bow down to Hashem majestic in holiness; tremble in His presence, all the earth!

ט  הִשְׁתַּחֲווּ לַיהֹוָה בְּהַדְרַת־קֹדֶשׁ חִילוּ מִפָּנָיו כָּל־הָאָרֶץ׃

10  Declare among the nations, “Hashem is king!” the world stands firm; it cannot be shaken; He judges the peoples with equity.

י  אִמְרוּ בַגּוֹיִם יְהֹוָה מָלָךְ אַף־תִּכּוֹן תֵּבֵל בַּל־תִּמּוֹט יָדִין עַמִּים בְּמֵישָׁרִים׃

11  Let the heavens rejoice and the earth exult; let the sea and all within it thunder,

יא  יִשְׂמְחוּ הַשָּׁמַיִם וְתָגֵל הָאָרֶץ יִרְעַם הַיָּם וּמְלֹאוֹ׃

12  the fields and everything in them exult; then shall all the trees of the forest shout for joy

יב  יַעֲלֹז שָׂדַי וְכָל־אֲשֶׁר־בּוֹ אָז יְרַנְּנוּ כָּל־עֲצֵי־יָעַר׃

13  at the presence of Hashem, for He is coming, for He is coming to rule the earth; He will rule the world justly, and its peoples in faithfulness.

יג  לִפְנֵי יְהֹוָה כִּי בָא כִּי בָא לִשְׁפֹּט הָאָרֶץ יִשְׁפֹּט־תֵּבֵל בְּצֶדֶק וְעַמִּים בֶּאֱמוּנָתוֹ׃

    Acts 4:9-12
    9If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; 10Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

    Psalm 48
    48 Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
    2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
    3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
    .
    Psalm 110
    110 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
    2 The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
    3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
    4 The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
    .
    Isaiah 52:14-15
    14 As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:
    15 So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.
    .
    Isaiah 53
    53 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
    2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
    3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
    4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
    5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
    6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
    7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
    8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
    9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
    10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
    11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
    12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
    5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
    6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
    7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
    .
    Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
