1 The Lord is king: let the peoples tremble; ♦︎
he is enthroned above the cherubim: let the earth shake.
2 The Lord is great in Zion ♦︎
and high above all peoples.
3 Let them praise your name, which is great and awesome; ♦︎
the Lord our God is holy.
4 Mighty king, who loves justice,
you have established equity; ♦︎
you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.
5 Exalt the Lord our God; ♦︎
bow down before his footstool, for he is holy.
6 Moses and Aaron among his priests
and Samuel among those who call upon his name; ♦︎
they called upon the Lord and he answered them.
7 He spoke to them out of the pillar of cloud; ♦︎
they kept his testimonies and the law that he gave them.
8 You answered them, O Lord our God; ♦︎
you were a God who forgave them
and pardoned them for their offences.
9 Exalt the Lord our God
and worship him upon his holy hill, ♦︎
for the Lord our God is holy.
1 I will sing of faithfulness and justice; ♦︎
to you, O Lord, will I sing.
2 Let me be wise in the way that is perfect: ♦︎
when will you come to me?
3 I will walk with purity of heart ♦︎
within the walls of my house.
4 I will not set before my eyes ♦︎
a counsel that is evil.
5 I abhor the deeds of unfaithfulness; ♦︎
they shall not cling to me.
6 A crooked heart shall depart from me; ♦︎
I will not know a wicked person.
7 One who slanders a neighbour in secret ♦︎
I will quickly put to silence.
8 Haughty eyes and an arrogant heart ♦︎
I will not endure.
9 My eyes are upon the faithful in the land, ♦︎
that they may dwell with me.
10 One who walks in the way that is pure ♦︎
shall be my servant.
11 There shall not dwell in my house ♦︎
one that practises deceit.
12 One who utters falsehood ♦︎
shall not continue in my sight.
13 Morning by morning will I put to silence ♦︎
all the wicked in the land,
14 To cut off from the city of the Lord ♦︎
all those who practise evil.
