1 Yahweh reigns; let the earth rejoice; Let the multitude of isles be glad.

2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

3 A fire goes before him, And burns up his adversaries round about.

4 His lightnings lightened the world: The earth saw, and trembled.

5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of Yahweh, At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6 The heavens declare his righteousness, And all the peoples have seen his glory.

7 Let all them be put to shame that serve graven images, That boast themselves of idols: Worship him, all you{+} gods.

8 Zion heard and was glad, And the daughters of Judah rejoiced, Because of your judgments, O Yahweh.

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

10 O you{+} who love Yahweh, hate evil: He preserves the souls of his saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.

11 Light is sown for the righteous, And gladness for the upright in heart.

12 Be glad in Yahweh, you{+} righteous; And give thanks to his holy memorial [name].
