1The Lord is king! Let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad!
2Clouds and thick darkness are all around him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3Fire goes before him, and consumes his adversaries on every side.
4His lightnings light up the world; the earth sees and trembles.
5The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth.
6The heavens proclaim his righteousness; and all the peoples behold his glory.
7All worshipers of images are put to shame, those who make their boast in worthless idols; all gods bow down before him.
8Zion hears and is glad, and the towns of Judah rejoice, because of your judgments, O God.
9For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.
10The Lord loves those who hate evil; he guards the lives of his faithful; he rescues them from the hand of the wicked.
11Light dawns for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart.
12Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name!
