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.1 comment

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׃
