Psalm 99 New Century Version (NCV)

The Lord, the Fair and Holy King

99 The Lord is king.
    Let the peoples shake with fear.
He sits between the gold creatures with wings.
    Let the earth shake.
The Lord in Jerusalem is great;
    he is supreme over all the peoples.
Let them praise your name;
    it is great, holy and to be feared.

The King is powerful and loves justice.
    Lord, you made things fair;
you have done what is fair and right
    for the people of Jacob.
Praise the Lord our God,
    and worship at the Temple, his footstool.
    He is holy.

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
    and Samuel was among his worshipers.
They called to the Lord,
    and he answered them.
He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud.
    They kept the rules and laws he gave them.

Lord our God, you answered them.
    You showed them that you are a forgiving God,
    but you punished them for their wrongs.
Praise the Lord our God,
    and worship at his holy mountain,
    because the Lord our God is holy.

Psalm 99 New 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.
