Psalm 99

1 The LORD reigns,
       let the nations tremble;
       he sits enthroned between the cherubim,
       let the earth shake.  2 Great is the LORD in Zion;
       he is exalted over all the nations.
 3 Let them praise your great and awesome name—
       he is holy.
 4 The King is mighty, he loves justice—
       you have established equity;
       in Jacob you have done
       what is just and right.
 5 Exalt the LORD our God
       and worship at his footstool;
       he is holy.
 6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
       Samuel was among those who called on his name;
       they called on the LORD
       and he answered them.
 7 He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;
       they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.
 8 O LORD our God,
       you answered them;
       you were to Israel a forgiving God,
       though you punished their misdeeds. 
 9 Exalt the LORD our God
       and worship at his holy mountain,
       for the LORD our God is holy.
