12 Moses said to the Lord, See, you have said to me, Bring up this people; but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, I know you by name, and you have also found favour in my sight. 13Now if I have found favour in your sight, show me your ways, so that I may know you and find favour in your sight. Consider too that this nation is your people. 14He said, My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. 15And he said to him, If your presence will not go, do not carry us up from here. 16For how shall it be known that I have found favour in your sight, I and your people, unless you go with us? In this way, we shall be distinct, I and your people, from every people on the face of the earth.
17 The Lord said to Moses, I will do the very thing that you have asked; for you have found favour in my sight, and I know you by name.
6 And he said to me, These words are trustworthy and true, for the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show his servants* what must soon take place.
7 See, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.
8 I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed them to me; 9but he said to me, You must not do that! I am a fellow-servant* with you and your comrades* the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God!
1 The Lord is king: let the earth rejoice;
let the multitude of the isles be glad.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him
and burns up his enemies on every side.
4 His lightnings lit up the world;
the earth saw it and trembled.
5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declared his righteousness,
and all the peoples have seen his glory.
7 Confounded be all who worship carved images
and delight in mere idols.
Bow down before him, all you gods.
8 Zion heard and was glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoiced,
because of your judgements, O Lord.
9 For you, Lord, are most high over all the earth;
you are exalted far above all gods.
10 The Lord loves those who hate evil;
he preserves the lives of his faithful
and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light has sprung up for the righteous
and joy for the true of heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name.
