Psalm 97

1 The LORD is king, let earth rejoice;

 let the many islands be glad.

 2 Cloud and darkness surround him;

 justice and right are the foundation of his throne.

3 A fire prepares his path;

 it burns up his foes on every side.

 4 His lightnings light up the world;

 the earth looks on and trembles.

5 The mountains melt like wax

 before the face of the LORD,

 before the face of the Lord of all the earth.

 6 The skies proclaim his justice;

 all peoples see his glory.

7 Let those who serve idols be ashamed,

 those who boast of their worthless gods.

 All you angels, worship him.

 8 Sion hears and is glad;

 the daughters of Judah rejoice

 because of your judgments, O LORD.

9 For you indeed are the LORD,

 most high above all the earth,

 exalted far above all gods.

10 The LORD loves those who hate evil;

 he guards the souls of his faithful;

 he sets them free from the wicked.

11 Light shines forth for the just one,

 and joy for the upright of heart.

 12 Rejoice in the LORD, you just;

 to the memory of his holiness give thanks.
