Salmos 97

1¡El Señor es rey!
    ¡Regocíjese la tierra!
    ¡Alégrense las costas más remotas!

Oscuros nubarrones lo rodean;
    la rectitud y la justicia son la base de su trono.
El fuego va delante de él
    y consume a los adversarios que lo rodean.
Sus relámpagos iluminan el mundo;
    al verlos, la tierra se estremece.
Ante el Señor, dueño de toda la tierra,
    las montañas se derriten como cera.
Los cielos proclaman su justicia,
    y todos los pueblos contemplan su gloria.

Sean avergonzados todos los idólatras,
    los que se jactan de sus ídolos inútiles.
    ¡Póstrense ante él todos los dioses!
Señor, por causa de tus juicios
    Sión escucha esto y se alegra,
    y las ciudades de Judá se regocijan.
Porque tú eres el Señor Altísimo,
    por encima de toda la tierra.
    ¡Tú estás muy por encima de todos los dioses!

10 El Señor ama[a] a los que odian[b] el mal;
    él protege la vida de sus fieles,
    y los libra de manos de los impíos.
11 La luz se esparce sobre los justos,
    y la alegría sobre los rectos de corazón.
12 Alégrense en el Señor, ustedes los justos,
    y alaben su santo nombre.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 97

The Lord’s Power and Dominion.

1The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice;
Let the many islands and coastlands be glad.

Clouds and thick darkness surround Him [as at Sinai];
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.

Fire goes before Him
And burns up His adversaries on all sides.

His lightnings have illuminated the world;
The earth has seen and trembled.

The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

The heavens declare His righteousness,
And all the peoples see His glory and brilliance.


Let all those be [deeply] ashamed who serve carved images,
Who boast in idols.
Worship Him, all you gods!

Zion heard this and was glad,
And the daughters (cities) of Judah rejoiced [in relief]
Because of Your judgments, O Lord.

For You are the Lord Most High over all the earth;
You are exalted far above all gods.

10 
You who love the Lord, hate evil;
He protects the souls of His godly ones (believers),
He rescues them from the hand of the wicked.
11 
Light is sown [like seed] for the righteous and illuminates their path,
And [irrepressible] joy [is spread] for the upright in heart [who delight in His favor and protection].
12 
Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous ones [those whose moral and spiritual integrity places them in right standing with God],
And praise and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
