97 Jehovah reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad.

2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

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

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

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

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

7 Let all them be put to shame 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 Jehovah.

9 For thou, Jehovah, art most high above all the earth: Thou art exalted far above all gods.

10 O ye that love Jehovah, 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 Be glad in Jehovah, ye righteous; and give thanks to his holy memorial (name).
