Day 19 — Psalm 97

The triumph of Yahweh

Yahweh is King! Let earth rejoice,
the many isles be glad!
Cloud and darkness surround Him,
righteousness and justice support His throne.

A fire precedes Him as He goes,
devouring all enemies around Him;
His lightning lights up the world,
earth observes and quakes.

The mountains melt like wax
at the coming of the Master of the world;
the heavens proclaim His righteousness,
all nations see His glory.

Shame on those who worship images,
who take pride in their idols:
bow down as He passes, all you gods!

Zion hears and rejoices,
the daughters of Judah exult
at the rulings You utter, Yahweh.

For You are Yahweh
Most High over the world,
far transcending all other gods.

Yahweh loves those who repudiate evil,
He guards the souls of the devout,
rescuing them from the clutches of the wicked.

Light dawns for the virtuous,
and joy, for upright hearts.
Rejoice in Yahweh, you virtuous,
remember His holiness, and praise Him!

Next… Psalm 98
