Book of Psalms

The Douay-Rheims Bible


Chapter 97

1    A psalm for David himself. Sing ye to the Lord anew canticle: because he hath done wonderful things. His right hand hath wrought for him salvation, and his arm is holy.
2    The Lord hath made known his salvation: he hath revealed his justice in the sight of the Gentiles.
3    He hath remembered his mercy his truth toward the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4    Sing joyfully to God, all the earth; make melody, rejoice and sing.
5    Sing praise to the Lord on the harp, on the harp, and with the voice of a psalm:
6    With long trumpets, and sound of comet. Make a joyful noise before the Lord our king:
7    Let the sea be moved and the fulness thereof: the world and they that dwell therein.
8    The rivers shall clap their hands, the mountains shall rejoice together
9    At the presence of the Lord: because he cometh to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with justice, and the people with equity.
