   3: A fire goes before him, And burns up his adversaries on every side.
   4: His lightning lights up the world; The earth sees, and trembles.
   5: The mountains melt like wax at the presence of Yahweh, At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
   6: The heavens declare his righteousness. All the peoples have seen his glory.
   7: Let all them be put to shame who serve engraved images, Who boast in their idols. Worship him, all you gods!

   9: For you, Yahweh, are most high above all the earth. You are exalted far above all gods.
