The heavens have declared his righteousness, and all the people have seen his glory. Confounded be all they that worship carved images, and that delight in vain gods; worship him, all ye gods. Sion heard of it, and rejoiced; and the daughters of Judah were glad, because of thy judgements, O Lord. For thou, Lord, art higher than all that are in the earth; thou art exalted far above all gods. O ye that love the Lord, see that ye hate the thing which is evil. The Lord preserveth the souls of his saints; he shall deliver them from the hand of the ungodly.
There is sprung up a light for the righteous, and joyful gladness for such as are true hearted. Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous, and give thanks for a remembrance of his holiness.
