99 The Lord reigns, let the peoples tremble [with submissive wonder]! He sits enthroned above the cherubim, let the earth shake! 2 The Lord is great in Zion, And He is exalted and magnified above all the peoples. 3 Let them [reverently] praise Your great and awesome name; Holy is He. 4 The strength of the King loves justice and righteous judgment; You have established fairness; You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob (Israel). 5 Exalt the Lord our God And worship at His footstool; Holy is He.
6 Moses 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. 7 He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud; They kept His testimonies And the statutes that He gave them. 8 You answered them, O Lord our God; You were a forgiving God to them, And yet an avenger of their evil practices. 9 Exalt the Lord our God And worship at His holy hill [Zion, the temple mount], For the Lord our God is holy.
All Men Exhorted to Praise God.
A Psalm of Thanksgiving.
100 Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Serve the Lord with gladness and delight; Come before His presence with joyful singing. 3 Know and fully recognize with gratitude that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, [a]not we ourselves [and we are His]. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter His gates with a song of thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, bless and praise His name. 5 For the Lord is good; His mercy and lovingkindness are everlasting, His faithfulness [endures] to all generations.
The Psalmist’s Profession of Uprightness.
A Psalm of David.
101 I will sing of [steadfast] lovingkindness and justice; To You, O Lord, I will sing praises. 2 I will behave wisely and follow the way of integrity. When will You come to me? I will walk in my house in integrity and with a blameless heart. 3 I will set no worthless or wicked thing before my eyes. I hate the practice of those who fall away [from the right path]; It will not grasp hold of me. 4 A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will not tolerate evil. 5 Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him I will silence; The one who has a haughty look and a proud (arrogant) heart I will not tolerate.
6 My eyes will be on the faithful (honorable) of the land, that they may dwell with me; He who walks blamelessly is the one who will minister to and serve me. 7 He who practices deceit will not dwell in my house; He who tells lies and half-truths will not continue [to remain] in my presence. 8 Morning after morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land, That I may cut off from the city of the Lord all those who do evil.
