Psalm 97

97
The Lord Reigns
1 # See Ps. 93:1 The Lord reigns, #Ps. 96:11 let the earth rejoice;
let the many #See Ps. 72:10coastlands be glad!
2 # Ex. 19:9; Deut. 4:11; 5:22; 1 Kgs. 8:12; See Ps. 18:11 Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
# Ps. 89:14 righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 # See Ps. 21:9; 50:3 Fire goes before him
and burns up his adversaries all around.
4His #Ps. 77:18 lightnings light up the world;
the earth sees and #[Ps. 96:9]trembles.
5The mountains #Nah. 1:5; [Judg. 5:5] melt like #See Ps. 68:2 wax before the Lord,
before #Josh. 3:11the Lord of all the earth.
6 # See Ps. 50:6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
and all #Isa. 40:5; 66:18; [Ps. 96:3]the peoples see his glory.
7All worshipers of images are #Isa. 42:17; 44:9 put to shame,
who make their boast in #Ps. 96:5 worthless idols;
# Heb. 1:6 worship him, all you gods!
8Zion hears and #Ps. 48:11is glad,
and the daughters of Judah rejoice,
because of your judgments, O Lord.
9For you, O Lord, are #See Ps. 83:18 most high over all the earth;
you are exalted far above #See Ps. 95:3all gods.
10O you who love the Lord, #Prov. 8:13; Amos 5:15; Rom. 12:9; See Ps. 34:14 hate evil!
He #Ps. 31:23; 37:28; 121:4; 145:20; Prov. 2:8 preserves the lives of his #See Ps. 30:4 saints;
he #Dan. 3:28; 6:27; Acts 12:11delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 # Ps. 112:4; 118:27; Prov. 4:18 Light #[Prov. 11:18; Hos. 10:12; James 3:18]is sown#97:11 Most Hebrew manuscripts; one Hebrew manuscript, Septuagint, Syriac, Jerome Light dawns for the righteous,
and joy for the upright in heart.
12 # See Ps. 32:11 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
and #See Ps. 30:4give thanks to his holy name!
