Psalm 97

The Glory of God’s Reign

1

The Lord is king! Let the earth rejoice;

let the many coastlands be glad!

2

Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;

righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

3

Fire goes before him,

and consumes his adversaries on every side.

4

His lightnings light up the world;

the earth sees and trembles.

5

The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,

before the Lord of all the earth.

 

6

The heavens proclaim his righteousness;

and all the peoples behold his glory.

7

All worshipers of images are put to shame,

those who make their boast in worthless idols;

all gods bow down before him.

8

Zion hears and is glad,

and the towns of Judah rejoice,

because of your judgments, O God.

9

For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth;

you are exalted far above all gods.

 

10

The Lord loves those who hate evil;

he guards the lives of his faithful;

he rescues them from the hand of the wicked.

11

Light dawns for the righteous,

and joy for the upright in heart.

12

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,

and give thanks to his holy name!
