All who serve idols are put to shame, who glory in worthless things;
all gods bow down before you.
Zion hears and is glad, and the cities of Judah rejoice,
because of your judgments, O Lord.
You, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth, exalted far above all gods.

The Lord loves those who hate evil, protects the lives of the faithful,
rescues them from the hand of the wicked.
Light dawns for the just; gladness for the honest of heart.
Rejoice in the Lord, you just, and praise his holy name.

Psalm 97 continued – verses 7-12
