Psalm 97
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Remember His Holy Name

1Yahweh [†]reigns, let the earth rejoice;

Let the many coastlands be glad.

2Clouds and thick darkness are all around Him;

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.

3Fire goes before Him

And burns up His adversaries all around.

4His lightnings light up the world;

The earth sees and trembles.

5The mountains melt like wax at the presence of Yahweh,

At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6The heavens declare His righteousness,

And all the peoples see His glory.

7Let all those be ashamed who serve graven images,

Who boast of idols;

[†]Worship Him, all you [†]gods!

8Zion [†]heard this and was glad,

And the daughters of Judah have rejoiced

Because of Your judgments, O Yahweh.

9For You are Yahweh Most High over all the earth;

You are exalted far above all [†]gods.

10Hate evil, you who love Yahweh,

Who keeps the souls of His holy ones;

He delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

11Light is sown for the righteous

And gladness for the upright in heart.

12Be glad in Yahweh, you righteous ones,

And give thanks for the remembrance of [†]His holy name.

1 Or has assumed Kingship
7 Or All the gods have worshiped Him
7 Or supernatural powers
8 Or possibly hears and is glad
9 Or supernatural powers
12 Lit His holiness
