- Psalm 75; 93; 94; 97; 98; 99; 100
GOD's name is near and His deeds are wonderful. He is the judge of man. He brings one down and lifts up another. The LORD holds a cup filled with foaming wine mixed with spices and He pours it out and makes all the wicked of the earth drink every drop.
The LORD reigns. He is robed in majesty and armed with strength. GOD's throne was established long ago, even from all eternity. The LORD on high is mighty. His statutes stand firm and holiness adorns His house for endless days.
GOD avenges and pays back the proud what they deserve. GOD disciplines the nations, teaches men who lack knowledge, and knows the thoughts of man—that they are futile. GOD grants the man He teaches by His law relief from his trouble. GOD will not reject His people nor forsake His inheritance. He has become my fortress and the rock upon which I take refuge. GOD repays sinners for their sins and destroys the wicked.
Because GOD reigns, the earth should be glad and rejoice. Clouds and thick darkness surround GOD and righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. Fire goes before Him and consumes His enemies on every side. His lightning lights up the world and causes the earth to tremble. GOD is most high above all the earth, far above any idols. He guards the lives of His faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked. He is holy.
GOD has done marvelous things. His right hand and holy arm have brought salvation. He has revealed salvation to the nations. He is the king and He comes to judge the earth in righteousness and equity.
The LORD reigns. He sits enthroned between the cherubim. Great is the LORD in Zion—He is exalted over all the nations. His name is both great and awesome—He is holy. He is the king who loves justice and is mighty. He has done what is just and right in Israel. The LORD answered the call of His servants. He spoke to them from a pillar of cloud. He is a forgiving GOD even though He punishes sin.
The LORD is God. He made us and we are His possessions, His people and the sheep of His pasture. The LORD is good and His love endures forever, His faithfulness through all generations.
