Psalm 97

1Jehovah reigneth: let the earth be glad, let the many isles rejoice.

2Clouds and darkness are round about him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of his throne.

3A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his adversaries round about.

4His lightnings lightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

5The mountains melted like wax at the presence of Jehovah, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory.

7Ashamed be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols. Worship him, all ye Elohimgods.

8Zion heard, and rejoiced; and the daughters of Judah were glad, because of thy judgments, O Jehovah.

9For thou, Jehovah, art the Most High above all the earth; thou art exalted exceedingly above all Elohimgods.

10Ye that love Jehovah, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints, he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

11Light is sown for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart.

12Rejoice in Jehovah, ye righteous; and give thanks in remembrance of his holiness.
