1 aThe Lord reigns, let the bearth rejoice; Let the many cislands be glad. 2 aClouds and thick darkness surround Him; bRighteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. 3 aFire goes before Him And bburns up His adversaries round about. 4 His alightnings lit up the world; The earth saw and btrembled. 5 The mountains amelted like wax at the presence of the Lord, At the presence of the bLord of the whole earth. 6 The aheavens declare His righteousness, And ball the peoples have seen His glory. 7 Let all those be ashamed who serve agraven images, Who boast themselves of bidols; cWorship Him, all you gods. 8 Zion heard this and awas glad, And the daughters of Judah have rejoiced Because of Your judgments, O Lord. 9 For You are the Lord aMost High over all the earth; You are exalted far babove all gods. 10 aHate evil, you who love the Lord, Who bpreserves the souls of His godly ones; He cdelivers them from the hand of the wicked. 11 aLight is sown like seed for the righteous And bgladness for the upright in heart. 12 Be aglad in the Lord, you righteous ones, And bgive thanks to His holy name.
