1 Jehovah hath reigned, The earth is joyful, many isles rejoice. 1 The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice.
2 Cloud and darkness [are] round about Him, Righteousness and judgment the basis of His throne. 2 Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire before Him goeth, And burneth round about His adversaries. 3 Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side.
4 Lightened have His lightnings the world, The earth hath seen, and is pained. 4 His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles.
5 Hills, like wax, melted before Jehovah, Before the Lord of all the earth. 5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.
6 The heavens declared His righteousness, And all the peoples have seen His honour. 6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory.
7 Ashamed are all servants of a graven image, Those boasting themselves in idols, Bow yourselves to him, all ye gods. 7 All who worship images are put to shame, those who boast in idols-- worship him, all you gods!
8 Zion hath heard and rejoiceth, And daughters of Judah are joyful, Because of Thy judgments, O Jehovah. 8 Zion hears and rejoices and the villages of Judah are glad because of your judgments, O LORD.
9 For Thou, Jehovah, [art] Most High over all the earth, Greatly Thou hast been exalted over all gods. 9 For you, O LORD, are the Most High over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.
10 Ye who love Jehovah, hate evil, He is keeping the souls of His saints, From the hand of the wicked he delivereth them. 10 Let those who love the LORD hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light [is] sown for the righteous, And for the upright of heart -- joy. 11 Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice, ye righteous, in Jehovah, And give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness! 12 Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name.
