Psalm 99 Good News Translation (GNT)

God the Supreme King

99 The Lord is king,
    and the people tremble.
He sits on his throne above the winged creatures,
    and the earth shakes.
The Lord is mighty in Zion;
    he is supreme over all the nations.
Everyone will praise his great and majestic name.
    Holy is he!

Mighty king,[a] you love what is right;
    you have established justice in Israel;
    you have brought righteousness and fairness.
Praise the Lord our God;
    worship before his throne!
    Holy is he!

Moses and Aaron were his priests,
    and Samuel was one who prayed to him;
    they called to the Lord, and he answered them.
He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;
    they obeyed the laws and commands that he gave them.

O Lord, our God, you answered your people;
    you showed them that you are a God who forgives,
    even though you punished them for their sins.
Praise the Lord our God,
    and worship at his sacred hill![b]
The Lord our God is holy.

Psalm 99 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 99

The Lord reigns,
    let the nations tremble;
he sits enthroned between the cherubim,
    let the earth shake.
Great is the Lord in Zion;
    he is exalted over all the nations.
Let them praise your great and awesome name
    he is holy.

The King is mighty, he loves justice
    you have established equity;
in Jacob you have done
    what is just and right.
Exalt the Lord our God
    and worship at his footstool;
    he is holy.

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
    Samuel was among those who called on his name;
they called on the Lord
    and he answered them.
He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;
    they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.

Lord our God,
    you answered them;
you were to Israel a forgiving God,
    though you punished their misdeeds.[a]
Exalt the Lord our God
    and worship at his holy mountain,
    for the Lord our God is holy.

Psalm 99 The Voice (VOICE)

Psalm 99

The Eternal is the king ruling over all;
    let all people shake in fear.
    He sits on His throne, settled between winged guardians;[a]
    let the planet tremble.
The Eternal is great in the hearts of His people;
    He has made Zion His sacred mountain,
    and He reigns majestic over all people.
Let them express praise and gratitude to Your amazing and awesome name—
    because He is holy, perfect and exalted in His power.
The King who rules with strength also treasures justice.
    You created order and established what is right.
You have carried out justice
    and done what is right to the people of Jacob.
Lift up the Eternal our God in your heart;
    bow down to the earth where He rests His feet.
    He is holy, perfect and exalted in His power.

Moses and Aaron were two of His priests;
    Samuel was among those who called out to Him.
    They asked the Eternal for help, and He answered them.
He answered them from a column of cloud;
    they heeded His testimonies
    and lived by the laws He gave them.

You answered them, Eternal our God;
    You were, to them, a God who forgives,
    yet You did not ignore what they did wrong
    and punished them fairly as well.
Lift up the Eternal our God in your hearts,
    and celebrate His goodness at His holy mountain,
    for the Eternal our God is holy, perfect and exalted in His power.
