The Lord, even the most mighty God, has spoken *
and called the world, from the rising of the sun to the going down thereof.
Out of Zion, perfect in her beauty, *
has God shone forth in glory.
Our God shall come and shall not keep silence; *
there shall go before him a consuming fire, and a mighty tempest shall be stirred up round about him.
He shall call to the heavens above, *
and to the earth beneath, that he may judge his people:
“Gather my faithful together unto me, *
those who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.”
And the heavens shall declare his righteousness, *
for God himself is Judge.
