99 Jehovah is King! Let the nations tremble! He is enthroned between the Guardian Angels. Let the whole earth shake.

Jehovah sits in majesty in Zion, supreme above all rulers of the earth. Let them reverence your great and holy name.

This mighty King is determined to give justice. Fairness is the touchstone of everything he does. He gives justice throughout Israel. Exalt the Lord our holy God! Bow low before his feet.

When Moses and Aaron and Samuel, his prophet, cried to him for help, he answered them. He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud, and they followed his instructions. O Jehovah our God! You answered them and forgave their sins, yet punished them when they went wrong.

Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his holy mountain in Jerusalem, for he is holy.

Psalm 99

The Lord reigns,(A)
    let the nations tremble;(B)
he sits enthroned(C) between the cherubim,(D)
    let the earth shake.
Great is the Lord(E) in Zion;(F)
    he is exalted(G) over all the nations.
Let them praise(H) your great and awesome name(I)
    he is holy.(J)

The King(K) is mighty, he loves justice(L)
    you have established equity;(M)
in Jacob you have done
    what is just and right.(N)
Exalt(O) the Lord our God
    and worship at his footstool;
    he is holy.

Moses(P) and Aaron(Q) were among his priests,
    Samuel(R) was among those who called on his name;
they called on the Lord
    and he answered(S) them.
He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;(T)
    they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.

Lord our God,
    you answered them;
you were to Israel a forgiving God,(U)
    though you punished(V) their misdeeds.[a]
Exalt the Lord our God
    and worship at his holy mountain,
    for the Lord our God is holy.
