1The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice;
Let the multitude of isles be glad.
2Clouds and darkness are round about him:
Righteousness and judgement are the foundation of his throne.
3A fire goeth before him,
And burneth up his adversaries round about.
4His lightnings lightened the world:
The earth saw, and trembled.
5The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD,
At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6The heavens declare his righteousness,
And all the peoples have seen his glory.
7Ashamed be all they that serve graven images,
That boast themselves of idols:
Worship him, all ye gods.
8Zion heard and was glad,
And the daughters of Judah rejoiced;
Because of thy judgements, O LORD.
9For thou, LORD, art most high above all the earth:
Thou art exalted far above all gods.
10O ye that love the LORD, hate evil:
He preserveth the souls of his saints;
He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
11Light is sown for the righteous,
And gladness for the upright in heart.
12Be glad in the LORD, ye righteous;
And give thanks to his holy name.
