Psalm 97

The Majestic King

1 The Lord reigns! Let the earth rejoice; let the many coasts and islands be glad.
2 Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.a
3 Fire goes before Him and burns up His foes on every side.
4 His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles.
5 The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the Lord b- at the presence of the Lord of all the earth.
6 The heavens proclaim His righteousness; all the peoples see His glory.
7 All who serve carved images, those who boast in idols, will be put to shame. All the godsc must worship Him.
8 Zion hears and is glad, and the townsd of Judah rejoice because of Your judgments,e Lord.
9 For You, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth; You are exalted above all the gods.f
10 You who love the Lord, hate evil!g He protects the lives of His godly ones; He rescues them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light dawnsh i for the righteous, gladness for the upright in heart.
12 Be glad in the Lord, you righteous ones,j and praise His holy name.k
