Psalm 99
New American Bible Revised Edition

Psalm 99*

The Holy King


1The Lord is king, the peoples tremble;

he is enthroned on the cherubim,* the earth quakes.a

2Great is the Lord in Zion,

exalted above all the peoples.

3Let them praise your great and awesome name:

Holy is he!b


4O mighty king, lover of justice,

you have established fairness;

you have created just rule in Jacob.c

5Exalt the Lord, our God;

bow down before his footstool;*d

holy is he!


6Moses and Aaron were among his priests,

Samuel among those who called on his name;

they called on the Lord, and he answered them.e

7From the pillar of cloud he spoke to them;

they kept his decrees, the law he had given them.f

8O Lord, our God, you answered them;

you were a forgiving God to them,

though you punished their offenses.g

9Exalt the Lord, our God;

bow down before his holy mountain;

holy is the Lord, our God.
