Psalm 97

Psalm 97

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.
