(English translation got from website: https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo )

  1. The Lord has reigned, the earth will exult; many islands will rejoice.
  2. Cloud and thick darkness are around Him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of His throne.
  3. Fire will go before Him and will burn His enemies all around.
  4. His lightnings illuminated the world; the earth saw and quaked.
  5. Mountains melted like wax from before the Lord, from before the Master of all the earth.
  6. The heavens told His righteousness, and all the earth saw His glory.
  7. All worshippers of graven images will be ashamed, yea those who boast of idols; all gods, prostrate yourselves before Him.
  8. Zion heard and rejoiced, and the daughters of Judah exulted, because of Your judgments, O Lord.
  9. For You, O Lord, are Most High above all the earth; You are very much exalted above all gods.
  10. You who love the Lord, hate evil; He watches the souls of His pious ones, He rescues them from the hands of the wicked.
  11. A light is sown for the righteous, and for the upright of heart, joy.
  12. Rejoice, you righteous, with the Lord, and give thanks to His holy name.
