Psalm 97-99 American Standard Version

<< Psalm 96 | Psalm 97-99 | Psalm 100 >>

The LORD's Dominion and Power

97 1  Jehovah reigneth; Let the earth rejoice; Let the multitude of isles be glad. 2  Clouds and darkness are round about him: Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. 3  A fire goeth before him, And burneth up his adversaries round about. 4  His lightnings lightened the world: The earth saw, and trembled. 5  The mountains melted like wax at the presence of Jehovah, At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. 6  The heavens declare his righteousness, And all the peoples have seen his glory. 7  Let all them be put to shame 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 Jehovah. 9  For thou, Jehovah, art most high above all the earth: Thou art exalted far above all gods. 10  O ye that love Jehovah, 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  Be glad in Jehovah, ye righteous; And give thanks to his holy memorial [name].

Praise for God's Righteousness

98 1  Oh sing unto Jehovah a new song; For he hath done marvellous things: His right hand, and his holy arm, hath wrought salvation for him. 2  Jehovah hath made known his salvation: His righteousness hath he openly showed in the sight of the nations. 3  He hath remembered his lovingkindness and his faithfulness toward the house of Israel: All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

4  Make a joyful noise unto Jehovah, all the earth: Break forth and sing for joy, yea, sing praises. 5  Sing praises unto Jehovah with the harp; With the harp and the voice of melody. 6  With trumpets and sound of cornet Make a joyful noise before the King, Jehovah. 7  Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; The world, and they that dwell therein; 8  Let the floods clap their hands; Let the hills sing for joy together 9  Before Jehovah; For he cometh to judge the earth: He will judge the world with righteousness, And the peoples with equity.

The LORD's Faithfulness to Israel

99 1  Jehovah reigneth; let the peoples tremble: He sitteth [above] the cherubim; let the earth be moved. 2  Jehovah is great in Zion; And he is high above all the peoples. 3  Let them praise thy great and terrible name: Holy is he. 4  The king's strength also loveth justice; Thou dost establish equity; Thou executest justice and righteousness in Jacob. 5  Exalt ye Jehovah our God, And worship at his footstool: Holy is he.

6  Moses and Aaron among his priests, And Samuel among them that call upon his name; They called upon Jehovah, and he answered them. 7  He spake unto them in the pillar of cloud: They kept his testimonies, And the statute that he gave them. 8  Thou answeredst them, O Jehovah our God: Thou wast a God that forgavest them, Though thou tookest vengeance of their doings. 9  Exalt ye Jehovah our God, And worship at his holy hill; For Jehovah our God is holy.
