Psalms 97

For David, when his land was established.

The Lord reigns, let the earth exalt, let many islands rejoice. Clouds and darkness are round about Him; righteousness and judgment are the establishment of His throne. Fire shall go before Him, and burn up His enemies round about. His lightnings light the world; the earth saw, and trembled. The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. The heavens have declared His righteousness, and all the people have seen His glory. Let all that worship graven images be ashamed, who boast of their idols; worship Him, all you His angels. Zion heard and rejoiced; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced, because of Your judgments, O Lord. For You are Lord Most High over all the earth; You are greatly exalted above all gods. 10 You that love the Lord, hate evil; the Lord preserves the souls of His saints; He shall deliver them from the hand of sinners. 11 Light has sprung up for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. 12 Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous; and give thanks for a remembrance of His holiness.
