Psalms 96:7-9 NIV
Ascribe to the LORD, all you families of nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts. Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth.
I had a sense of what 'to ascribe' means, so I looked up a fuller definition. Here it is: to say or think that (something) is caused by, comes from, or is associated with (something or someone) : assign, credit, or blame. Examples given of usage in the dictionary: They ascribed his illness to chemicals in his brain. The author ascribes the economy's success to the current government. She ascribes no importance to having lots of money (Webster's).
The psalmist is keen on ascribing to God what is His due: glory and strength. The psalmist is telling us recognise and remember that glory and strength and holiness belong to God. We can do this by bringing offerings and entering His courts with praise. We are to give God the glory. We are to worship Him because of the splendour of His holiness; the earth should tremble.
You alone are worthy of praise, O Lord! And all God's people say Amen in Jesus's name. Amen.
