Psalm 97

Psalm 97

The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad;
    let the distant shores rejoice.
Clouds and thick darkness surround him;
    righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him
    and consumes his foes on every side.
His lightning lights up the world;
    the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
    before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
    and all peoples see his glory.

All who worship images are put to shame,
    those who boast in idols –
    worship him, all you gods!

Zion hears and rejoices
    and the villages of Judah are glad
    because of your judgments, Lord.
For you, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth;
    you are exalted far above all gods.
10 Let those who love the Lord hate evil,
    for he guards the lives of his faithful ones
    and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light shines[a] on the righteous
    and joy on the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, you who are righteous,
    and praise his holy name.

詩篇 97

上帝是至高的統治者

1耶和華掌權,大地要歡欣!
眾海島要快樂!
密雲和黑暗環繞在祂周圍,
公義和公平是祂寶座的根基。
烈火做祂的先鋒,
燒滅祂周圍的仇敵。
祂的閃電照亮世界,
大地因此而戰抖。
在天下之主耶和華面前,
群山如蠟熔化。
諸天述說祂的公義,
萬民瞻仰祂的榮耀。
願一切祭拜神像,
以神像誇口的人都蒙羞。
所有的神明啊,
你們都要向耶和華下拜。
耶和華啊,聽見你的審判,
錫安就歡喜,
猶大的城邑就快樂。
因為你耶和華是普天下的至高者,
凌駕於萬神之上。
10 愛耶和華的人都要憎恨罪惡,
因為祂保護敬虔人的生命,
從惡人手中拯救他們。
11 光照亮義人,
正直人心中有喜樂。
12 你們義人要以耶和華為樂,
稱謝祂的聖名。
