Psalm 96


1. What’s your favorite new song on the radio? From church? Where else do you hear new material?

2. When was the last time you changed a long-held opinion of yours? What do you now believe?

3. Why does the psalm appear in the Book of Chronicles (see 1 Chronicles 16:8 – 33)? Why do you think one version is longer?

4. To whom are verses 1 – 6 directed? Verses 7 – 10? Verses 11 – 13?

5. What’s the importance of the international appeal of this psalm? What is the psalmist’s vision of the One to come? Why is that? What is “for he comes” a cause of joy (verse 13)?

6. What new thing would you like God to do in your life? How do old habits, limitations or people interfere with your singing a new song? How could it start today?

7. Does it seem to you that God reigns? What hasn’t the just Judge come?
