97:1 The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice; 6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness, 8 Zion hears and is glad, 10 O you who love the Lord, hate evil!
The Lord Reigns
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 burns up his adversaries all around.
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.
and all the peoples see his glory.
7 All worshipers of images are put to shame,
who make their boast in worthless idols;
worship him, all you gods!
and the daughters of Judah rejoice,
because of your judgments, O Lord.
9 For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth;
you are exalted far above all gods.
He preserves the lives of his saints;
he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light is sown 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!
97:1 The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice;
6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
8 Zion hears and is glad,
10 O you who love the Lord, hate evil!
