Psalm 96:1-7
1O sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth! 2Sing to the Lord, bless (affectionately praise) His Name; show forth His salvation from day to day. 3Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all the peoples. 4For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; He is to be reverently feared and worshiped above all [so-called] gods. 5For all the gods of the nations are [lifeless] idols, but the Lord made the heavens. 6Honor and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His sanctuary. 7Ascribe to the Lord, O you families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

Psalm 97:1-6
1The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles and coastlands be glad! 2Clouds and darkness are round about Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. 3Fire goes before Him and burns up His adversaries round about. 4His lightnings illumine the world; the earth sees and trembles. 5The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. 6The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory.

Psalm 148:1-13
1Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens, praise Him in the heights! 2Praise Him, all His angels, praise Him, all His hosts! 3Praise Him, sun and moon, praise Him, all you stars of light! 4Praise Him, you highest heavens and you waters above the heavens! 5Let them praise the Name of the Lord, for He commanded and they were created. 6He also established them forever and ever; He made a decree which shall not pass away [He fixed their bounds which cannot be passed over]. 7Praise the Lord from the earth, you sea monsters and all deeps! 8You lightning, hail, fog, and frost, you stormy wind fulfilling His orders! 9Mountains and all hills, fruitful trees and all cedars! 10Beasts and all cattle, creeping things and flying birds! 11Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers and judges of the earth! 12Both young men and maidens, old men and children! 13Let them praise and exalt the Name of the Lord, for His Name alone is exalted and supreme! His glory and majesty are above earth and heaven!

1 Chronicles 16:27-29
27 Honor and majesty are [found] in His [God’s] presence; strength and joy are [found] in His sanctuary. 28 Ascribe to the Lord, you families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength, 29 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name. Bring an offering and come before Him; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness and in holy array.

1 Chronicles 29:11-14
11Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and the earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and Yours it is to be exalted as Head over all. 12Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hands are power and might; in Your hands it is to make great and to give strength to all. 13Now therefore, our God, we thank You and praise Your glorious name and those attributes which that name denotes. 14But who am I, and what are my people, that we should retain strength and be able to offer thus so willingly? For all things come from You, and out of Your own [hand] we have given You.

In this selection of verses from the Bible, God’s glory and power are exalted, but a number of God’s other virtues are also praised. Take a moment to identify these virtues.

Be sure to reread Psalm 96:6 and compare it to 1 Chronicles 16:27.

In 1 Chronicles 16:27, a virtue of the King of Glory is mentioned which might surprise you.

With the focus of these verses on God’s majesty, glory, and power, did you realize that joy is also an important aspect of His nature and character?

Job 8:21
21 He [God] will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with joyful shouting.
