23 (A)Sing to the Lord, all the earth;
Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.
24 Tell of His glory among the nations,
His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.
25 For (B)great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
He also is (C)to be feared above all gods.
26 For all the gods of the peoples are [a](D)idols,
(E)But the Lord made the heavens.
27 Splendor and majesty are before Him,
Strength and joy are in His place.
28 Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
29 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name;
Bring an [b]offering, and come before Him;
(F)Worship the Lord in [c]holy array.
30 Tremble before Him, all the earth;
Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
31 (G)Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
And let them say among the nations, “(H)The Lord reigns.”
32 (I)Let the sea [d]roar, and [e]all it contains;
Let the field exult, and all that is in it.
33 Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord;
For He is coming to judge the earth.
