Psalm 99:3
3Let them praise Your great and awesome name;
         Holy is He.

4The strength of the King loves justice;
         You have established equity;
         You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.

5Exalt the LORD our God
         And worship at His footstool;
         Holy is He.

6Moses and Aaron were among His priests,
         And Samuel was among those who called on His name;
         They called upon the LORD and He answered them.

7He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud;
         They kept His testimonies
         And the statute that He gave them.

8O LORD our God, You answered them;
         You were a forgiving God to them,
         And yet an avenger of their evil deeds.

9Exalt the LORD our God
         And worship at His holy hill,
         For holy is the LORD our God.

Forgiveness and Retribution
'Thou wast a God that forgavest them, though Thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.'--PSALM xcix. 8. When the prophet Isaiah saw the great vision which called him to service, he heard from the lips of the seraphim around the Throne the threefold ascription of praise: 'Holy! holy! holy!

The piety of the Old Testament Church is reflected with more clearness and variety in the Psalter than in any other book of the Old Testament. It constitutes the response of the Church to the divine demands of prophecy, and, in a less degree, of law; or, rather, it expresses those emotions and aspirations of the universal heart which lie deeper than any formal demand. It is the speech of the soul face to face with God. Its words are as simple and unaffected as human words can be, for it is the genius
