Psalm 971 The Lord is king, let the earth rejoice:
let her many isles be glad.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him,
justice and right are the base of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him,
and blazes around his steps,
4 his lightnings illumine the world:
the earth quakes at the sight.
5 Mountains melt like wax
before the Lord of all the earth.
6 The heavens proclaim his justice,
all nations behold his glory.
7 Shamed are all image-worshippers,
who make a boast of their idols.
All the gods bow before him.
8 Zion is glad at the tidings,
the towns of Judah rejoice
because of your judgments, Lord.
9 For you are most high over all the earth,
greatly exalted above all gods.
10 The Lord loves those who hate evil,
he guards the lives of the faithful:
from the hand of the wicked he saves them.
11 Light arises for the righteous,
and joy for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous:
give thanks to his holy name.
