Psalm 98 encourages everyone to "sing to the Lord a new song" in recognition of the wondrous deeds He has accomplished. It affirms God's power and sovereignty, recounting how He has brought salvation and made His righteousness known to all. The message is not confined to Israel but extends to the entire earth, emphasizing God's universal reign. The psalmist also portrays the natural world—seas, rivers, mountains—as bursting into jubilant song. This universal celebration looks forward to the day when God will come to judge the world with righteousness and fairness. Psalm 98 is a powerful reminder of God's redemptive plan, a call to worship that summons every corner of creation to acknowledge and exalt the Divine.

Psalm 98

1  (A Psalm.) O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

2  The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.

3  He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

4  Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

5  Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.

6  With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.

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

8  Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together
