The song of the creator (1 Chr 16:28-16:34)

“Ascribe to Yahweh,

O families of the peoples,

Ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength!

Ascribe to Yahweh the glory due his name!

Bring an offering, and come before him!

Worship Yahweh in holy splendor!

Tremble before him, all the earth!

The world is firmly established.

The world shall never be moved.

Let the heavens be glad!

Let the earth rejoice!

Let them say among the nations, ‘Yahweh is king!’

Let the sea roar, and all that fills it!

Let the field exult, and everything in it!

Then shall the trees of the wood sing for joy

Before Yahweh, for he comes to judge the earth.

O give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good!

For his steadfast love endures forever!”

This song or psalm follows Psalm 96, verses 7-13. Yahweh is glorious and strong. We should bring an offering and worship his glory and splendor. We tremble before him. All the earth trembles before him. Yahweh has established the world that will not be moved. We should all rejoice both heaven and earth. We should proclaim to all the nations that Yahweh is king. He rules the sea, the fields, and the trees. He will come to judge the earth. We give thanks to Yahweh, because he is good. His love lasts forever. This last verse is from Psalm 106, about the everlasting love of God.
