Psalm 97-99

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Psalm 97

Yahweh reigns; let the earth rejoice;

Let the multitude of isles be glad.

2 Clouds and darkness are all around him:

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

3 A fire goes before him,

And burns up his adversaries all around.

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 Sovereign 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 elohim.

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 elohim.

10 O you that 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.



Psalm 98

O sing to Yahweh a new song;

For he has done marvelous things:

His right hand, and his holy arm, has worked salvation for him.

2 Yahweh has made known his salvation:

His righteousness has he openly showed in the sight of the nations.

3 He has remembered his lovingkindness and his faithfulness toward the house Of Israel:

All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our Elohim.

4 Make a joyful noise to Yahweh, all the earth:

Break forth and sing for joy, yes, sing praises.

5 Sing praises to Yahweh with the harp;

With the harp and the voice of melody.

6 With trumpets and sound of cornet

Make a joyful noise before the King, Yahweh.

7 Let the sea roar, and the fulness of it;

The world, and they that dwell in it;

8 Let the floods clap their hands;

Let the hills sing for joy together

9 Before Yahweh; for he comes to judge the earth:

He will judge the world with righteousness,

And the peoples with equity.



Psalm 99

Yahweh reigns; let the peoples tremble:

He sits above the cherubim; let the earth be moved.

2 Yahweh is great in Zion;

And he is high above all the peoples.

3 Let them praise your great and terrible name:

Holy is he.

4 The king’s strength also loves justice;

You did establish equity;

You execute justice and righteousness in Jacob.

5 Exalt Yahweh our Elohim,

And worship at his footstool:

Holy is he.

6 Moses and Aaron among his priests,

And Samuel among them that call upon his name;

They called upon Yahweh, and he answered them.

7 He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud:

They kept his testimonies,

And the statute that he gave them.

8 You answered them, O Yahweh our Elohim:

You were El that forgave them,

Though you took vengeance of their doings.

9 Exalt Yahweh our Elohim,

And worship at his holy hill;

For Yahweh our Elohim is holy.
