Psalm of the Day – January 20, 2020 (Psalm 97)

1   The LORD is king! Let the earth rejoice; 
          let the many coastlands be glad! 
2   Clouds and thick darkness are all around him; 
          righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. 
3   Fire goes before him, 
          and consumes his adversaries on every side. 
4   His lightnings light up the world; 
          the earth sees and trembles. 
5   The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, 
          before the Lord of all the earth.

6   The heavens proclaim his righteousness; 
          and all the peoples behold his glory. 
7   All worshipers of images are put to shame, 
          those who make their boast in worthless idols; 
          all gods bow down before him. 
8   Zion hears and is glad, 
          and the towns of Judah rejoice, 
          because of your judgments, O God. 
9   For you, O LORD, are most high over all the earth; 
          you are exalted far above all gods.

10  The LORD loves those who hate evil; 
          he guards the lives of his faithful; 
          he rescues them from the hand of the wicked. 
11  Light dawns for the righteous, 
          and joy for the upright in heart. 
12  Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous, 
          and give thanks to his holy name!
