Psalm 97
The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice; *
let the many coastlands be glad!
Clouds and thick darkness are round about him; *
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him *
and burns up his adversaries on every side.
His lightning bolts light up the world; *
the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, *
before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness, *
and all the peoples see his glory.
Let all who worship images be put to shame,
those who boast of worthless idols. *
Bow down before him, all you gods!
Zion hears this and is glad, *
the daughters of Judah rejoice,
because of your judgments, O LORD.
For you, O LORD, are the most high over all the earth; *
you are exalted far above all gods.
O you who love the LORD, hate evil! *
He preserves the lives of his saints;
he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
Light is sown for the righteous, *
and joy for the upright in heart.
Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous ones, *
and give thanks to his holy Name!
