The Lord, the Fair and Holy King

99 The Lord ·is king [reigns; 47:2; 93:1; 96:10; 97:1; 98:6; Rev. 19:6].
    Let the peoples ·shake [tremble; C with fear].
He sits between the ·gold creatures with wings [L cherubim; C above the Ark of the Covenant; Ex. 25:17–22; 1 Kin. 8:7].
    Let the earth shake.
The Lord in ·Jerusalem [L Zion; C the location of the Temple] is great;
    he is ·supreme [exalted] over all the peoples.
Let them ·praise [thank] your name;
    it is great, holy and ·to be feared [awesome].
The King is ·powerful [strong] and loves justice.
    Lord, you ·made [established] things fair;
you have done what is ·fair [righteous] and ·right [just]
    for the people of Jacob [C another name for Israel].
·Praise [Exalt] the Lord our God,
    and ·worship [bow down] at the footstool of his feet [C the Ark located in the Temple].
He is holy.

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
    and Samuel was among ·his worshipers [L those who called on his name].
They called to the Lord,
    and he answered them [Ex. 32:11–13, 30–32; Num. 12:13; 14:13–19; 1 Sam. 7:5, 8–9; 12:16–18; Jer. 15:1].
He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud [Ex. 13:21].
    They ·kept [observed; guarded] the ·rules [statutes; ordinances; requirements] and ·laws [decrees; testimonies] he gave them.

Lord our God, you answered them.
    You showed them that you are a forgiving God,
    but you ·punished them [are an avenger] for their wrongs [Deut. 32:35; Is. 34:8; Ezek. 24:8; 25:14–17; Nah. 1:2; Rom. 12:19; 1 Thess. 4:6].
·Praise [Exalt] the Lord our God,
    and ·worship [bow down] at his holy mountain,
because the Lord our God is holy.

Psalm 99New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 99

The Lord reigns,
    let the nations tremble;
he sits enthroned between the cherubim,
    let the earth shake.
Great is the Lord in Zion;
    he is exalted over all the nations.
Let them praise your great and awesome name
    he is holy.

The King is mighty, he loves justice
    you have established equity;
in Jacob you have done
    what is just and right.
Exalt the Lord our God
    and worship at his footstool;
    he is holy.

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
    Samuel was among those who called on his name;
they called on the Lord
    and he answered them.
He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;
    they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.

Lord our God,
    you answered them;
you were to Israel a forgiving God,
    though you punished their misdeeds.[a]
Exalt the Lord our God
    and worship at his holy mountain,
    for the Lord our God is holy.
