Tell all people about the wonderful things he has done.4The Lord is great. He is really worthy of praise. People should have respect for him as the greatest God of all.5All of the gods of the nations are like their statues. They can't do anything. But the Lord made the heavens.6Glory and majesty are all around him. Strength and glory can be seen in his temple.7Praise the Lord, all you nations. Praise the Lord for his glory and strength.8Praise the Lord for the glory that belongs to him. Bring an offering and come into the courtyards of his temple.9Worship the Lord because of his beauty and holiness. All you people of the earth, tremble when you are with him.10Say to the nations, “The Lord rules.” The world is firmly set in place. It can't be moved. The Lord will judge the people of the world fairly.11Let the heavens be full of joy. Let the earth be glad. Let the ocean and everything in it roar.12Let the fields and everything in them be glad. Then all of the trees in the forest will sing with joy.13They will sing to the Lord, because he is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the people of the world in keeping with what is right and true.
