Let the earth rejoice!
Let the farthest coastlands be glad.
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
and burns up all his foes.
The earth sees and trembles.
before the Lord of all the earth.
every nation sees his glory.
all who brag about their worthless gods—
for every god must bow to him.
8 Jerusalem* has heard and rejoiced,
and all the towns of Judah are glad
because of your justice, O Lord!
you are exalted far above all gods.
He protects the lives of his godly people
and rescues them from the power of the wicked.
and joy on those whose hearts are right.
and praise his holy name!
97:8 Hebrew Zion.
