Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  A Psalm. O sing unto Hashem a new song; for He hath done marvellous things; His right hand, and His holy arm, hath wrought salvation for Him.

א  מִזְמוֹר שִׁירוּ לַיהוָה שִׁיר חָדָשׁ כִּי נִפְלָאוֹת עָשָׂה הוֹשִׁיעָה לּוֹ יְמִינוֹ וּזְרוֹעַ קָדְשׁוֹ.

2  Hashem hath made known His salvation; His righteousness hath He revealed in the sight of the nations.

ב  הוֹדִיעַ יְהוָה יְשׁוּעָתוֹ לְעֵינֵי הַגּוֹיִם גִּלָּה צִדְקָתוֹ.

3  He hath remembered His mercy and His faithfulness toward the house of Yisrael; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

ג  זָכַר חַסְדּוֹ וֶאֱמוּנָתוֹ לְבֵית יִשְׂרָאֵל רָאוּ כָל אַפְסֵי אָרֶץ אֵת יְשׁוּעַת אֱלֹהֵינוּ.

4  Shout unto Hashem, all the earth; break forth and sing for joy, yea, sing praises.

ד  הָרִיעוּ לַיהוָה כָּל הָאָרֶץ פִּצְחוּ וְרַנְּנוּ וְזַמֵּרוּ.

5  Sing praises unto Hashem with the harp; with the harp and the voice of melody.

ה  זַמְּרוּ לַיהוָה בְּכִנּוֹר בְּכִנּוֹר וְקוֹל זִמְרָה.

6  With trumpets and sound of the horn shout ye before the King, Hashem.

ו  בַּחֲצֹצְרוֹת וְקוֹל שׁוֹפָר הָרִיעוּ לִפְנֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ יְהוָה.

7  Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein;

ז  יִרְעַם הַיָּם וּמְלֹאוֹ תֵּבֵל וְיֹשְׁבֵי בָהּ.

8  Let the floods clap their hands; let the mountains sing for joy together;

n’-ha-ROT yim-KHA-u khaf YA-khad ha-REEM y’-ra-NAY-nu

ח  נְהָרוֹת יִמְחֲאוּ כָף יַחַד הָרִים יְרַנֵּנוּ.

98:8   Let the floods clap their hands

The sharp sounds of waters crashing into the rocks, as if calling out to God, and the juxtaposition of great mountains which stand as an affirmation of God’s wondrous creations, can only be referring to one place in Israel: Rosh Hanikra. In the northwestern tip of the country, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, there is a unique geological phenomenon.  A cliff made of soft white chalk rock hovers over the sea. Over time, the crashing of the waves into the soft rock of the mountain has created different rock formations as well as cavernous tunnels called grottoes. The grottoes weave the geology, history and spirit of the Land of Israel together beautifully. This represents nature’s grand praise of God in the Land of Israel.


9  Before Hashem, for He is come to judge the earth; He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.

ט  לִפְנֵי יְהוָה כִּי בָא לִשְׁפֹּט הָאָרֶץ יִשְׁפֹּט תֵּבֵל בְּצֶדֶק וְעַמִּים בְּמֵישָׁרִים.
