1 The Lord is King; let the earth be glad.*
Indeed, let the multitude of the isles be glad.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him;*
righteousness and judgment are the foundation of his throne.
3 There goes a fire before him*
and burns up his enemies on every side.
4 His lightnings gave light to the world;*
the earth saw it and was afraid.
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 have declared his righteousness,*
and all the people have seen his glory.
7 Confounded be all those who worship carved images, and who delight in false gods;*
worship him, all you gods.
8 Zion heard of it and rejoiced,*
and the daughters of Judah were glad, because of your judgments, O Lord.
9 For you, Lord, are most high over all the earth;*
you are exalted far above all gods.
10 O you who love the Lord, see that you hate the thing which is evil;*
the Lord preserves the souls of his saints; he shall deliver them from the hand of the ungodly.
11 A light has sprung up for the righteous,*
and joyful gladness for those who are truehearted.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous,*
and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
