Psalm 97 (American Standard Version)
American Standard Version (ASV)
97 1 Jehovah reigneth; let the earth rejoice; Let the multitude of isles be glad.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 A fire goeth before him, And burneth up his adversaries round about.
4 His lightnings lightened the world: The earth saw, and trembled.
5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of Jehovah, At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declare his righteousness, And all the peoples have seen his glory.
7 Let all them be put to shame that serve graven images, That boast themselves of idols: Worship him, all ye gods.
8 Zion heard and was glad, And the daughters of Judah rejoiced, Because of thy judgments, O Jehovah.
9 For thou, Jehovah, art most high above all the earth: Thou art exalted far above all gods.
10 O ye that love Jehovah, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of his saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
11 Light is sown for the righteous, And gladness for the upright in heart.
12 Be glad in Jehovah, ye righteous; And give thanks to his holy memorial name.
