The Psalms 97

The LORD‘s Dominion and Power
1  The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice;
let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
2  Clouds and darkness are round about him:
righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
3  A fire goeth before him,
and burneth up his enemies round about.
4  His lightnings enlightened the world:
the earth saw, and trembled.
5  The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD,
at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6  The heavens declare his righteousness,
and all the people see his glory.
7  Confounded be all they that serve graven images,
that boast themselves of idols:
worship him, all ye gods.
8  Zion heard, and was glad;
and the daughters of Judah rejoiced
because of thy judgments, O LORD.
9  For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth:
thou art exalted far above all gods.
10  Ye that love the LORD, hate evil:
he preserveth the souls of his saints;
he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
11  Light is sown for the righteous,
and gladness for the upright in heart.
12  Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous;
and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
