Book IV
Jehovah’s Power and Dominion
[1]  JEHOVAH reigneth; 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 goeth before him,
And burneth 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 Jehovah,
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 ye gods.
[8]  Zion heard and was glad,
And the daughters of Judah rejoiced,
Because of thy judgments, O Jehovah.
[9]  For thou, Jehovah, art most high above all the earth:
Thou art exalted far above all gods.
[10]  O ye that love Jehovah, hate evil:
He preserveth the souls of his saints;
He delivereth 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 Jehovah, ye righteous;
And give thanks to his holy memorial name.
