Psalm 99

Praise To The LORD For His Fidelity To Israel.

1The LORD reigns, let the peoples tremble [with submissive wonder]!
He sits enthroned above the cherubim, let the earth shake!
2The LORD is great in Zion,
And He is exalted and magnified above all the peoples.
3Let them [reverently] praise Your great and awesome name;
Holy is He.
4The strength of the King loves justice and righteous judgment;
You have established fairness;
You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob (Israel).
5Exalt the LORD our God
And worship at His footstool;
Holy is He.
6Moses and Aaron were among His priests,
And Samuel was among those who called on His name;
They called upon the LORD and He answered them.
7He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud;
They kept His testimonies
And the statutes that He gave them.
8You answered them, O LORD our God;
You were a forgiving God to them,
And yet an avenger of their evil practices.
9Exalt the LORD our God
And worship at His holy hill [Zion, the temple mount],
For the LORD our God is holy.
