Psalm 97
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1YHWH has reigned, "" The earth is joyful, many islands rejoice.

2Cloud and darkness [are] around Him, "" Righteousness and judgment the basis of His throne.

3Fire goes before Him, "" And burns around His adversaries.

4His lightnings have lightened the world, "" The earth has seen, and is pained.

5Hills, like wax, melted before YHWH, "" Before the Lord of all the earth.

6The heavens declared His righteousness, "" And all the peoples have seen His glory.

7All servants of a carved image are ashamed, "" Those boasting themselves in idols, "" Bow yourselves to Him, all you gods.

8Zion has heard and rejoices, "" And daughters of Judah are joyful, "" Because of Your judgments, O YHWH.

9For You, YHWH, [are] Most High over all the earth, "" You have been exalted greatly over all gods.

10You who love YHWH, hate evil, "" He is keeping the souls of His saints, "" He delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

11Light [is] sown for the righteous, "" And joy for the upright of heart.

12Rejoice, you righteous, in YHWH, "" And give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness!
