Psalms - Chapter 97 | American Standard Version

  • 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 {cf15i name}.
