|<< Psalm 97 >>|
English Revised Version
Let the Multitude of Islands Be Glad!
1The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad.
2Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the foundation of his throne.
3A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his adversaries round about.
4His lightnings lightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
5The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth;
6The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the peoples have seen his glory.
7Ashamed be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.
8Zion heard and was glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoiced; because of thy judgments, O LORD.
9For thou, LORD, art most high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.
10O ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
11Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
12Be glad in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks to his holy name.
