1: The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad. 2: Clouds and darkness surround him: righteousness and judgment [are] the habitation of his throne. 3: A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about. 4: His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled. 5: The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. 6: The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory. 7: Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols; worship him, all [ye] gods. 8: Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD. 9: For thou, LORD, [art] high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods. 10: Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. 11: Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. 12: Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
