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!
