Psalms: 97

The Lord is King!.

The LORD reigns; let the earth rejoice;
let the many coastlands be glad!
Clouds and thick darkness are round about him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him,
and burns up his adversaries round about.
His lightnings lighten the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
before the Lord of all the earth.

The heavens proclaim his righteousness;
and all the peoples behold his glory.
All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols;
all gods bow down before him.
Zion hears and is glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoice,
because of thy judgments, O God.
For thou, O LORD, art most high over all the earth;
thou art exalted far above all gods.

The LORD loves those who hate evil;
he preserves the lives of his saints;
he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
Light dawns for the righteous,
and joy for the upright in heart.
Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name!
