King James Version

Psalm 99

1The Lord reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.

The Lord is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people.

Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.

The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.

Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.

Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the Lord, and he answered them.

He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.

Thou answeredst them, O Lord our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.

Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the Lord our God is holy.

Psalm 99

Psalm 99

The Lord rules.
    Let the nations tremble.
He sits on his throne between the cherubim.
    Let the earth shake.
Great is the Lord in Zion.
    He is honored over all the nations.
Let them praise his great and wonderful name.
    He is holy.

The King is mighty and loves justice.
    He has set up the rules for fairness.
He has done what is right and fair
    for the people of Jacob.
Honor the Lord our God.
    Worship at his feet.
    He is holy.

Moses and Aaron were two of his priests.
    Samuel was one of those who worshiped him.
They called out to the Lord.
    And he answered them.
He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud.
    They obeyed his laws and the orders he gave them.

Lord our God, you answered them.
    You showed Israel that you are a God who forgives.
    But when they did wrong, you punished them.
Honor the Lord our God.
    Worship at his holy mountain.
    The Lord our God is holy.
