Psalms 99

Psalm 99

The King Is Holy

1The Lord reigns! Let the peoples tremble.

He is enthroned between the cherubim.

Let the earth quake.

2The Lord is great in Zion;

he is exalted above all the peoples.

3Let them praise your great

and awe-inspiring name.

He is holy.

4The mighty King loves justice.

You have established fairness;

you have administered justice

and righteousness in Jacob.

5Exalt the Lord our God;

bow in worship at his footstool.

He is holy.

6Moses and Aaron were among his priests;

Samuel also was among those calling on his name.

They called to the Lord and he answered them.

7He spoke to them in a pillar of cloud;

they kept his decrees and the statutes he gave them.

8Lord our God, you answered them.

You were a forgiving God to them,

but an avenger of their sinful actions.

9Exalt the Lord our God;

bow in worship at his holy mountain,

for the Lord our God is holy.
