97 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
The LORD reigns; let the earth rejoice;
let the many coastlands be glad!
יְהוָה מָלָךְ תָּגֵל הָאָרֶץ יִשְׂמְחוּ אִיִּים רַבִּים׃ The Lord is King!. Psalm 97(v96)
Clouds and thick darkness are round about him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
עָןָן וַעֲרָפֶל סְבִיבָיו צֶדֶק וּמִשְׁפָּט מְכֹון כִּסְאֹו׃  
Fire goes before him,
and burns up his adversaries round about.
אֵשׁ לְפָנָיו תֵּלֵךְ וּתְלַהֵט סָבִיב צָרָיו׃  
His lightnings lighten the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
הֵאִירוּ בְרָקָיו תֵּבֵל רָאֲתָה וַתָּחֵל הָאָרֶץ׃  
The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
before the Lord of all the earth.
הָרִים כַּדֹּונַג נָמַסּוּ מִלִּפְנֵי יְהוָה מִלִּפְנֵי אֲדֹון כָּל־הָאָרֶץ׃  
The heavens proclaim his righteousness;
and all the peoples behold his glory.
הִגִּידוּ הַשָּׁמַיִם צִדְקֹו וְרָאוּ כָל־הָעַמִּים כְּבֹודֹו׃  
All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols;
all gods bow down before him.
יֵבֹשׁוּ כָּל־עֹבְדֵי פֶסֶל הַמִּתְהַלְלִים בָּאֱלִילִים הִשְׁתַּחֲווּ־לֹו כָּל־אֱלֹהִים׃  
Zion hears and is glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoice,
because of thy judgments, O God.
שָׁמְעָה וַתִּשְׂמַח צִיֹּון וַתָּגֵלְנָה בְּנֹות יְהוּדָה לְמַעַן מִשְׁפָּטֶיךָ יְהוָה׃  
For thou, O LORD, art most high over all the earth;
thou art exalted far above all gods.
כִּי־אַתָּה יְהוָה עֶלְיֹון עַל־כָּל־הָאָרֶץ מְאֹד נַעֲלֵיתָ עַל־כָּל־אֱלֹהִים׃  
The LORD loves those who hate evil;
he preserves the lives of his saints;
he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
אֹהֲבֵי יְהוָה שִׂנְאוּ רָע שֹׁמֵר נַפְשֹׁות חֲסִידָיו מִיַּד רְשָׁעִים יַצִּילֵם׃ 
Light dawns for the righteous,
and joy for the upright in heart.
אֹור זָרֻעַ לַצַּדִּיק וּלְיִשְׁרֵי־לֵב שִׂמְחָה׃  
Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name!
שִׂמְחוּ צַדִּיקִים בַּיהוָה וְהֹודוּ לְזֵכֶר קָדְשֹׁו׃  
      << | Psalms: 97 | >>
