Psalm 97

The Glory of God’s Reign


1 The Lord is king! Let the earth rejoice;
   let the many coastlands be glad!
2 Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
   righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him,
   and consumes his adversaries on every side.
4 His lightnings light up the world;
   the earth sees and trembles.
5 The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
   before the Lord of all the earth.


6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness;
   and all the peoples behold his glory.
7 All worshippers of images are put to shame,
   those who make their boast in worthless idols;
   all gods bow down before him.
8 Zion hears and is glad,
   and the towns* of Judah rejoice,
   because of your judgements, O God.
9 For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth;
   you are exalted far above all gods.


10 The Lord loves those who hate* evil;
   he guards the lives of his faithful;
   he rescues them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light dawns* for the righteous,
   and joy for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
   and give thanks to his holy name!

Psalm 99

Praise to God for His Holiness


1 The Lord is king; let the peoples tremble!
   He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!
2 The Lord is great in Zion;
   he is exalted over all the peoples.
3 Let them praise your great and awesome name.
   Holy is he!
4 Mighty King,* lover of justice,
   you have established equity;
you have executed justice
   and righteousness in Jacob.
5 Extol the Lord our God;
   worship at his footstool.
   Holy is he!


6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
   Samuel also was among those who called on his name.
   They cried to the Lord, and he answered them.
7 He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud;
   they kept his decrees,
   and the statutes that he gave them.


8Lord our God, you answered them;
   you were a forgiving God to them,
   but an avenger of their wrongdoings.
9 Extol the Lord our God,
   and worship at his holy mountain;
   for the Lord our God is holy.
