1 The LORD is king! Let the nations tremble! He sits on his throne between the cherubim. Let the whole earth quake! 2 The LORD sits in majesty in Jerusalem, exalted above all the nations. 3 Let them praise your great and awesome name. Your name is holy! 4 Mighty King, lover of justice, you have established fairness. You have acted with justice and righteousness throughout Israel. 5 Exalt the LORD our God! Bow low before his feet, for he is holy! 6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests; Samuel also called on his name. They cried to the LORD for help, and he answered them. 7 He spoke to Israel from the pillar of cloud, and they followed the laws and decrees he gave them. 8 O LORD our God, you answered them. You were a forgiving God to them, but you punished them when they went wrong. 9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy mountain in Jerusalem, for the LORD our God is holy!
