The Lord is King; let the peoples tremble; *
he sits between the cherubim; let the earth shake.
The Lord is great in Zion *
and high above all peoples.
They shall give thanks unto his Name, which is great and wonderful; *
holy is he and mighty, a King who loves justice.
You have established equity; *
you have executed judgment and righteousness in Jacob.
O magnify the Lord our God, *
and fall down before his footstool, for he is holy.
Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among those who call upon his Name, *
they called upon the Lord, and he heard them.
He spoke to them out of the cloudy pillar, *
for they kept his testimonies and the law that he gave them.
You heard them, O Lord our God; *
you forgave them, O God, yet punished their evildoings.
O magnify the Lord our God, and worship him upon his holy hill, *
for the Lord our God is holy.
O be joyful in the Lord, all you lands; *
serve the Lord with gladness, and come beforehis presence with a song.
Be assured that the Lord, he is God; *
it is he that has made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; *
be thankful unto him, and speak good of his Name.
For the Lord is gracious, his mercy is everlasting, *
and his truth endures from generation to generation.
Misericordiam et judicium
My song shall be of mercy and judgment; *
unto you, O Lord, will I sing.
O let me have understanding *
in the way of godliness.
When will you come to me? *
I will walk in my house with integrity of heart.
I will set no wicked thing before my eyes; *
I hate the sins of unfaithfulness; no such thing shall cleave to me.
A crooked heart shall depart from me; *
I will not know a wicked person.
Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, *
him will I destroy.
Whoever has a proud look and an arrogant heart, *
I will not suffer him.
My eyes shall look with favor upon the faithful in the land, *
that they may dwell with me.
Whoever leads a godly life, *
he shall be my servant.
No deceitful person shall dwell in my house; *
the one who tells lies shall not tarry in my sight.
I shall soon destroy all the ungodly who are in the land, *
that I may root out all evildoers from the city of the Lord.
