Psalm 99 English Standard Version

The LORD's Faithfulness to Israel

99 1  The Lord reigns; 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  The King in his might loves justice.[1] You have established equity; you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob. 5  Exalt 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 upon his name. They called to the Lord, and he answered them. 7  In the pillar of the cloud he spoke to them; they kept his testimonies and the statute that he gave them. 8  O Lord our God, you answered them; you were a forgiving God to them, but an avenger of their wrongdoings. 9  Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at his holy mountain; for the Lord our God is holy!


[1] 99:4 Or The might of the King loves justice
