The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of coastlands 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 enemies round about.
    4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
    5 The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
    6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
    7 Let them all be ashamed 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 LORD.
    9 For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.
    10 Ye that love the LORD, 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 Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks to his holy name.
