Psalm 99

The Holy One Rules in Israel

Admonition to the Nations

The Lord reigns. Let the peoples tremble.
He is seated above the cherubim. Let the earth quake.
The Lord is great in Zion. He is exalted over all the peoples.
Let them praise your name, great and awesome.


He is holy!

Assurance to Israel

The King is mighty. He loves justice.
You, Lord,[a] have established fairness.
In Jacob you carried out justice and righteousness.
Exalt the Lord our God and bow down before his footstool.


He is holy!

Examples From History

Moses and Aaron were among his priests.
Samuel was among those who call on his name.
They called on the Lord, and he answered them.
From within the pillar of cloud he spoke to them.
They kept his testimonies and the order that he gave them.
O Lord our God, you answered them.
For them you were a God who removes sin,
but you repaid them for their deeds.

Concluding Refrain

Exalt the Lord our God,
and bow down before his holy mountain,
because the Lord our God is holy.


  1. Psalm 99:4 The word Lord is added to clarify the shift from third to second person.
