Read Psalm 99


Read Psalm 99

The Lord is king;
and the people tremble.
He is enthroned above the winged creatures
and the earth shakes.
2The Lord is mighty in Zion;
he is supreme over all the nations.
3Everyone will praise his great and majestic name.
Holy is he!
4Mighty king,y you love what is right;
you have established justice in Israel;
you have brought righteousness and fairness.
5Praise the Lord our God;
worship before his throne!
Holy is he!
6Moses and Aaron were his priests,
and Samuel was one who prayed to him;
they called to the Lord, and he answered them.
7He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;
they obeyed the laws and commands that he gave them.
8O Lord, our God, you answered your people;
you showed them that you are a God who forgives,
even though you punished them for their sins.
9Praise the Lord our God,
and worship at his sacred hill!z
The Lord our God is holy.


This Psalm describes God's Majesty - a Mighty King, enthroned above angels, causing the whole Earth to shake.  It is an invitation to remember God's majesty.


Mighty God, enthroned above the angels, supreme over all the nations; lover of justice.  You answer your people, you promise to have mercy on us.  Help me, more and more, to realize your majesty.
