Praise in the way of a canticle, for David himself, on the day before the sabbath, when the earth was founded.
1The Lord hath reigned, he is clothed with beauty: the Lord is clothed with strength, and hath girded himself. For he hath established the world which shall not be moved. 2Thy throne is prepared from of old: thou art from everlasting. 3The floods have lifted up, O Lord: the floods have lifted up their voice. The floods have lifted up their waves, 4with the noise of many waters. Wonderful are the surges of the sea: wonderful is the Lord on high. 5Thy testimonies are become exceedingly credible: holiness becometh thy house, O Lord, unto length of days.
