Psalm 97 Wednesday Morning 2
Yahweh reigns; let the earth be glad, * the many islands rejoice.
Clouds and storm billows surround him; * justice and right are the base of his throne.
A fire goes before him, * and flashes around his back.
His lightning bolts light up the world; * the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax * at the sight of Yahweh, * at the sight of the master of all the earth.
The heavens announce his just claim; * all the peoples see his glory.
Let all who serve images be shamed, * those who boast of their rags; * bow down to him, all you gods!
Let Zion hear and rejoice; * let the daughters of Judah be glad * because of your providence, Yahweh.
For you are Yahweh Most High, * over all the earth Most Great; * you are high above all gods.
Yahweh loves those who hate evil, * protects the lives of his worshipers, * and will rescue them from the hand of the wicked.
A blooming Field is destined for the just, * and happiness for upright hearts.
Rejoice, you just, in Yahweh, * and give thanks to his holy name.
