The Lord reigns, let the peoples tremble; He is enthroned above the cherubim, let the earth shake!
There I will meet with you; and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, I will speak to you about all that I will give you in commandment for the sons of Israel.
For the choir director; set to El Shoshannim; Eduth. A Psalm of Asaph. Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who are enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth!
The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice; Let the many islands be glad.
The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty; The Lord has clothed and girded Himself with strength; Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
The earth is broken asunder, The earth is split through, The earth is shaken violently.
“But as for Me, I have installed My King Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”
Worship the Lord with reverence And rejoice with trembling.
He rode upon a cherub and flew; And He sped upon the wings of the wind.
Your hand will find out all your enemies; Your right hand will find out those who hate you.
They do not know nor do they understand; They walk about in darkness; All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
Say among the nations, “ The Lord reigns; Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved; He will judge the peoples with equity.”
His lightnings lit up the world; The earth saw and trembled.
The Lord has mixed within her a spirit of distortion; They have led Egypt astray in all that it does, As a drunken man staggers in his vomit.
I looked on the mountains, and behold, they were quaking, And all the hills moved to and fro.
‘Do you not fear Me?’ declares the Lord. ‘Do you not tremble in My presence? For I have placed the sand as a boundary for the sea, An eternal decree, so it cannot cross over it. Though the waves toss, yet they cannot prevail; Though they roar, yet they cannot cross over it.
The earth has quaked at the noise of their downfall. There is an outcry! The noise of it has been heard at the Red Sea.
At the shout, “Babylon has been seized!” the earth is shaken, and an outcry is heard among the nations.
Then I looked, and behold, in the expanse that was over the heads of the cherubim something like a sapphire stone, in appearance resembling a throne, appeared above them.
So He said, “ A nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and then return.
But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.’
But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence.”
So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling;
The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
saying, “We give You thanks, O Lord God, the Almighty, who are and who were, because You have taken Your great power and have begun to reign.
Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them.
