1The Lord reigns,
   let the nations tremble;
  he sits enthroned between the cherubim,
   let the earth shake.
  2Great is the Lord in Zion;
   he is exalted over all the nations.
  3Let them praise your great and awesome name—
   he is holy.

  4The King is mighty, he loves justice—
   you have established equity;
  in Jacob you have done
   what is just and right.
  5Exalt the Lord our God
   and worship at his footstool;
   he is holy.

  6Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
   Samuel was among those who called on his name;
  they called on the Lord
   and he answered them.
  7He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;
   they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.

  8Lord our God,
   you answered them;
  you were to Israel a forgiving God,
   though you punished their misdeeds.
  9Exalt the Lord our God
   and worship at his holy mountain,
   for the Lord our God is holy.
