King James 2000 Bible
The Omnipotent LORD Reigns
1The LORD reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of coastlands be glad.
2Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and justice are the habitation of his throne.
3A fire goes before him, and burns up his enemies round about.
4His lightnings light up 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 people see his glory.
7Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all you gods.
8Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of your judgments, O LORD.
9For you, LORD, are high above all the earth: you are exalted far above all gods.
10You that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserves the souls of his saints; he delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.
11Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
12Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
