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.
The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly showed in the sight of the heathen.
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.
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together
Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

98:3 the ends of the earth. When Christ returns, in glory at the end of the tribulation period, “every eye shall see Him” (Revelation 1:7).

98:6 sound of cornet. In contrast to the “solemn sound” prescribed for sabbath-day worship in Israel (see note on Psalm 92:3), the time when Christ returns in glory will be a time for “the joyful sound” (Psalm 89:15), with a “new song” (Psalm 98:1), and all kinds of musical instruments (note also Psalm 150).

98:9 He cometh to judge. When Christ returns, there will be several judgments, all of them “with equity,” for “the Father...hath committed all judgment unto the Son” (John 5:22). See notes on Matthew 25:32; I Corinthians 3:12-15; Romans 8:1; II Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:12-15).
