Psalm 99

The Lord reigns,(A)
    let the nations tremble;(B)
he sits enthroned(C) between the cherubim,(D)
    let the earth shake.
Great is the Lord(E) in Zion;(F)
    he is exalted(G) over all the nations.
Let them praise(H) your great and awesome name(I)
    he is holy.(J)

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

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

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

Psalm 100

A psalm. For giving grateful praise.

Shout for joy(W) to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord(X) with gladness;
    come before him(Y) with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.(Z)
    It is he who made us,(AA) and we are his[b];
    we are his people,(AB) the sheep of his pasture.(AC)

Enter his gates with thanksgiving(AD)
    and his courts(AE) with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.(AF)
For the Lord is good(AG) and his love endures forever;(AH)
    his faithfulness(AI) continues through all generations.

Psalm 101

Of David. A psalm.

I will sing of your love(AJ) and justice;
    to you, Lord, I will sing praise.
I will be careful to lead a blameless life(AK)
    when will you come to me?

I will conduct the affairs(AL) of my house
    with a blameless heart.
I will not look with approval
    on anything that is vile.(AM)

I hate what faithless people do;(AN)
    I will have no part in it.
The perverse of heart(AO) shall be far from me;
    I will have nothing to do with what is evil.

Whoever slanders their neighbor(AP) in secret,
    I will put to silence;
whoever has haughty eyes(AQ) and a proud heart,
    I will not tolerate.

My eyes will be on the faithful in the land,
    that they may dwell with me;
the one whose walk is blameless(AR)
    will minister to me.

No one who practices deceit
    will dwell in my house;
no one who speaks falsely
    will stand in my presence.

Every morning(AS) I will put to silence
    all the wicked(AT) in the land;
I will cut off every evildoer(AU)
    from the city of the Lord.(AV)
