THE BOOK OF PSALMS

- Chapter 97 -

 
T
he LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
 
2
Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
 
3
A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.
 
4
His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
 
5
The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
 
6
The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
 
7
Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.
 
8
Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.
 
9
For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.
 
10
Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
 
11
Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
 
12
Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
