1The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad. 2Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment 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 judgments, 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.
