99 The Lord ·is king [reigns; 47:2; 93:1; 96:10; 97:1; 98:6; Rev. 19:6]. Let the peoples ·shake [tremble; C with fear]. He sits between the ·gold creatures with wings [L cherubim; C above the Ark of the Covenant; Ex. 25:17–22; 1 Kin. 8:7]. Let the earth shake. 2 The Lord in ·Jerusalem [L Zion; C the location of the Temple] is great; he is ·supreme [exalted] over all the peoples. 3 Let them ·praise [thank] your name; it is great, holy and ·to be feared [awesome]. 4 The King is ·powerful [strong] and loves justice. Lord, you ·made [established] things fair; you have done what is ·fair [righteous] and ·right [just] for the people of Jacob [C another name for Israel]. 5 ·Praise [Exalt] the Lord our God, and ·worship [bow down] at the footstool of his feet [C the Ark located in the Temple]. He is holy.
6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests, and Samuel was among ·his worshipers [L those who called on his name]. They called to the Lord, and he answered them [Ex. 32:11–13, 30–32; Num. 12:13; 14:13–19; 1 Sam. 7:5, 8–9; 12:16–18; Jer. 15:1]. 7 He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud [Ex. 13:21]. They ·kept [observed; guarded] the ·rules [statutes; ordinances; requirements] and ·laws [decrees; testimonies] he gave them.
8 Lord our God, you answered them. You showed them that you are a forgiving God, but you ·punished them [are an avenger] for their wrongs [Deut. 32:35; Is. 34:8; Ezek. 24:8; 25:14–17; Nah. 1:2; Rom. 12:19; 1 Thess. 4:6]. 9 ·Praise [Exalt] the Lord our God, and ·worship [bow down] at his holy mountain, because the Lord our God is holy.
