The song of the great Yahweh (1 Chr 16:23-16:27)

“Sing to Yahweh!

All the earth!

Tell of his salvation from day to day!

Declare his glory among the nations!

His marvelous works among all the peoples!

For great is Yahweh!

Greatly to be praised!

He is to be revered above all gods.

For all the gods of the peoples are idols.

But Yahweh made the heavens.

Honor and majesty are before him.

Strength and joy are in his place.”

Whether by King David, Asaph, or the biblical author of this book, this song or psalm is similar to Psalm 96, verses 1-6. This famous psalm asks us to sing a new song. We are to sing a song to Yahweh since he saves us every day. We have to declare his glory and his marvelous works to everybody. Yahweh is really great, greater than all the other gods and their idols. Yahweh has made the heavens and the earth. Therefore he deserves our honor. With Yahweh, we have strength and joy.
