Psalm 97

1 The Lord is king: let the earth rejoice; ¨ let the multitude of the isles be glad.

2 Clouds and darkness are round about him; ¨ righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

3 Fire goes before him ¨ and burns up his enemies on every side.

4 His lightnings lit up the world; ¨ the earth saw it and trembled.

5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, ¨ at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6 The heavens declared his righteousness, ¨ and all the peoples have seen his glory.

7 Confounded be all who worship carved images and delight in mere idols. ¨ Bow down before him, all you gods.

8 Zion heard and was glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoiced, ¨ because of your judgements, O Lord.

9 For you, Lord, are most high over all the earth; ¨ you are exalted far above all gods.

10 The Lord loves those who hate evil; ¨ he preserves the lives of his faithful and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

11 Light has sprung up for the righteous ¨ and joy for the true of heart.

12 Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous, ¨ and give thanks to his holy name.
