Psalm 97


1God reigneth, let the earth be glad,

and isles rejoice each one.

2Dark clouds him compass; and in right

with judgment dwells his throne.

3Fire goes before him, and his foes

it burns up round about:

4His lightnings lighten did the world;

earth saw, and shook throughout.

5Hills at the presence of the Lord,

like wax, did melt away;

Ev’n at the presence of the Lord

of all the earth, I say.

6The heav’ns declare his righteousness,

all men his glory see.

7All who serve graven images,

confounded let them be.

Who do of idols boast themselves,

let shame upon them fall:

Ye that are called gods, see that

ye do him worship all.

8Sion did hear, and joyful was,

glad Judah’s daughters were;

They much rejoic’d, O Lord, because

thy judgments did appear.

9For thou, O Lord, art high above

all things on earth that are;

Above all other gods thou art

exalted very far.

10Hate ill, all ye that love the Lord:

his saints’ souls keepeth he;

And from the hands of wicked men

he sets them safe and free.

11For all those that be righteous

sown is a joyful light,

And gladness sown is for all those

that are in heart upright.

12Ye righteous, in the Lord rejoice;

express your thankfulness,

When ye into your memory

do call his holiness.
