Psalm 99

Praise to the Lord for His Faithfulness to Israel.

99 The Lord reigns, [a]the peoples tremble!
He sits enthroned above the cherubim, [b]the earth quakes!
The Lord [c]is great in Zion,
And He is exalted above all the peoples.
May they praise Your great and awesome name;
Holy is [d]He.
The [e]strength of the King loves [f]justice;
You have established [g]order;
You have executed [h]justice and righteousness in Jacob.
[i]Exalt the Lord our God
And worship at His footstool;
Holy is He.

Moses and Aaron were among His priests,
And Samuel was among those who called on His name;
They called upon the Lord and He answered them.
He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud;
They kept His testimonies
And the statute that He gave them.
Lord our God, You answered them;
You were a forgiving God to them,
And yet an avenger of their evil deeds.
Exalt the Lord our God
And worship at His holy hill,
For the Lord our God is holy.
