Ye gods!

1 The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

2Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

God is surrounded by clouds and darkness. [1]

3A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.

4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

A fire goes before him, burning his enemies to death.

5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

The hills melt in God's presence.

He is lord of the whole earth. [2]

7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.

8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.

All you gods out there should worship him. [3]

9For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

Oh God, you are high above the earth.

You are higher than all the other gods.

12Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

Righteous people rejoice in God. [4]
