Psalter manuscript

Psalm 99: The Lord is king


The Lord is king, let all the coastlands fear and tremble;
He who dwells among His people is on Zion’s hill enthroned.
Let all the nations of the earth,
With solemn joy and holy mirth,
Extol everywhere His noble Name.

Justice and strength with equity He has established;
Righteousness in Jacob’s country as a sign for all to see.
The ancient priesthood there foresaw
The destination of His Law
And faithfully kept each just decree.

The Lord our God declared to them His loving kindness,
Freely pardoning their failures; overlooking sin and shame.
When He His retribution brought
Upon the ones His anger caught,
His faithful ones blessed His holy Name.
