1: Yahweh reigns! Let the earth rejoice! Let the multitude of islands be glad! 2: Clouds and darkness are around him. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. 3: A fire goes before him, and burns up his adversaries on every side. 4: His lightning lights up the world. The earth sees, and trembles. 5: The mountains melt like wax at the presence of Yahweh, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. 6: The heavens declare his righteousness. All the peoples have seen his glory. 7: Let all them be shamed who serve engraved images, who boast in their idols. Worship him, all you gods! 8: Zion heard and was glad. The daughters of Judah rejoiced, because of your judgments, Yahweh. 9: For you, Yahweh, are most high above all the earth. You are exalted far above all gods. 10: 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 people! Give thanks to his holy Name. Psalm 98 A Psalm.
