Psalm 97Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

The Glory of God’s Reign

97 The Lord reigns; let the earth rejoice;
    let the many coastlands be glad!
Clouds and thick darkness are round about him;
    righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him,
    and burns up his adversaries round about.
His lightnings lighten the world;
    the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
    before the Lord of all the earth.

The heavens proclaim his righteousness;
    and all the peoples behold his glory.
All worshipers of images are put to shame,
    who make their boast in worthless idols;
    all gods bow down before him.
Zion hears and is glad,
    and the daughters of Judah rejoice,
    because of thy judgments, O God.
For thou, O Lord, art most high over all the earth;
    thou art exalted far above all gods.

10 The Lord loves those who hate evil;[a]
    he preserves the lives of his saints;
    he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light dawns[b] for the righteous,
    and joy for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
    and give thanks to his holy name!
