Psalms - Chapter 97 | New King James Version

  • 1. The Lord reigns; Let the earth rejoice; Let the multitude of isles be glad!
  • 2. Clouds and darkness surround Him; Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
  • 3. A fire goes before Him, And burns up His enemies round about.
  • 4. His lightnings light the world; The earth sees and trembles.
  • 5. The mountains melt 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 peoples see His glory.
  • 7. Let all be put to shame who serve carved images, Who boast of idols. Worship Him, all you gods.
  • 8. Zion hears and is glad, And the daughters of Judah rejoice Because of Your judgments, O Lord.
  • 9. For You, Lord, are most high above all the earth; You are exalted far above all gods.
  • 10. You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers 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, you righteous, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. {cf2super [88]}
