Psalms 97 (asv)

Psalms 97 (asv)

97:1Jehovah reigneth; let the earth rejoice;

Let the multitude of isles be glad.

97:2Clouds and darkness are round about him:

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

97:3A fire goeth before him,

And burneth up his adversaries round about.

97:4His lightnings lightened the world:

The earth saw, and trembled.

97:5The mountains melted like wax at the presence of Jehovah,

At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

97:6The heavens declare his righteousness,

And all the peoples have seen his glory.

97:7Let all them be put to shame that serve graven images,

That boast themselves of idols:

Worship him, all ye gods.

97:8Zion heard and was glad,

And the daughters of Judah rejoiced,

Because of thy judgments, O Jehovah.

97:9For thou, Jehovah, art most high above all the earth:

Thou art exalted far above all gods.

97:10O ye that love Jehovah, hate evil:

He preserveth the souls of his saints;

He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

97:11Light is sown for the righteous,

And gladness for the upright in heart.

97:12Be glad in Jehovah, ye righteous;

And give thanks to his holy memorial name.
