97 The Lord is King! Tell the earth to celebrate and all islands to shout. 2 Dark clouds surround him, and his throne is supported by justice and fairness. 3 Fire leaps from his throne, destroying his enemies, 4 and his lightning is so bright that the earth sees it and trembles. 5 Mountains melt away like wax in the presence of the Lord of all the earth.
6 The heavens announce, “The Lord brings justice!” Everyone sees God’s glory. 7 Those who brag about the useless idols they worship are terribly ashamed, and all the false gods bow down to the Lord.
8 When the people of Zion and of the towns of Judah hear that God brings justice, they will celebrate. 9 The Lord rules the whole earth, and he is more glorious than all the false gods.
10 Love the Lord and hate evil! God protects his loyal people and rescues them from violence. 11 If you obey and do right, a light will show you the way and fill you with happiness. 12 You are the Lord’s people! So celebrate and praise the only God.
