1 The Eternal reigns powerful over all; let the earth sing with joy; let the distant islands celebrate. 2 Clouds and deep darkness encircle Him; righteousness and justice are the bedrock of His rule. 3 Fire precedes Him; it burns away His opponents on all sides. 4 With His lightning flashing about, He illuminates the world; the earth watches and trembles. 5 Like wax before the flame, mountains melt when the Eternal appears, the Master of the whole earth.
6 The heavens display His order and perfect justice; all peoples witness His magnificence. 7 Those who worship idols, who boast in the impotent creations of human hands, will be shamed. Worship Him, all you gods. 8 Zion heard and was glad, and the daughters of Judah celebrated because they saw Your justice, O Eternal One. 9 For You are the Eternal, the Most High, over the entire world; You far exceed all gods.
10 Hate evil, you lovers of the Eternal. He protects the souls of those who follow Him; He rescues them from the devices of the wicked. 11 Light is sown in the just; as it grows, it brings joy to the pure of heart. 12 Celebrate the Eternal God, all you who are faithful; offer thanks to His holy name.
