1 The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice;
let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about 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.
