1: The Lord is King, let the earth have joy; let all the sea-lands be glad. 2: Dark clouds are round him; his kingdom is based on righteousness and right judging. 3: Fire goes before him, burning up all those who are against him round about. 4: His bright flames give light to the world; the earth saw it with fear. 5: The mountains became like wax at the coming of the Lord, at the coming of the Lord of all the earth. 6: The heavens gave out the news of his righteousness, and all the people saw his glory. 7: Shamed be all those who give worship to images, and take pride in false gods; give him worship, all you gods. 8: Zion gave ear and was glad; and the daughters of Judah were full of joy, because of your decisions, O Lord. 9: For you, Lord, are most high over the earth; you are lifted up over all other gods. 10: You who are lovers of the Lord, be haters of evil; he keeps the souls of his saints; he takes them out of the hand of sinners. 11: Light is shining on the lovers of righteousness, and for the upright in heart there is joy. 12: Be glad in the Lord, you upright men; praising the memory of his holy name.
