Exalted Above All Gods
1Adonai reigns, let the earth rejoice, let the many islands be glad.
2Clouds and darkness are all around Him. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
3Fire goes before Him and burns up His adversaries on every side.
4His lightning lights up the world the earth sees and trembles.
5The mountains melt like wax at the presence of Adonai, at the presence of the Lord of all earth.
6The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the peoples have seen His glory.
7Let all who serve graven images be ashamedwho boast in idols. Bow down before Him, all you gods!
8Zion hears and is glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoice, because of Your judgments, Adonai.
9For You, Adonai, are Elyon above all the earth. You are exalted far above all gods.
10You who love Adonai, hate evil! He watches over the souls of His godly ones. He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.
11Light is sown for the righteous and gladness for the upright in heart.
12Rejoice in Adonai, you righteous ones, and praise His holy Name.
