Psalm 97 King James Version

The LORD's Dominion and Power

97 The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude [1] of isles be glad thereof. 2  Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation [2] of his throne. 3  A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about. 4  His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled. 5  The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. 6  The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory. 7  Confounded be all they 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 Lord. 9  For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods. 10  Ye that love the Lord, 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  Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
