Read Psalm 99


Read Psalm 99

The Lord is king,
   and the people tremble.
He sits on his throne above the winged creatures,
   and the earth shakes.
2 The Lord is mighty in Zion;
   he is supreme over all the nations.
3 Everyone will praise his great and majestic name.
   Holy is he!

4 Mighty king,[a] you love what is right;
   you have established justice in Israel;
   you have brought righteousness and fairness.
5 Praise the Lord our God;
   worship before his throne!
   Holy is he!

6 Moses and Aaron were his priests,
   and Samuel was one who prayed to him;
   they called to the Lord, and he answered them.
7 He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;
   they obeyed the laws and commands that he gave them.

8 O 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.
9 Praise the Lord our God,
   and worship at his sacred hill![b]
The Lord our God is holy.

The Psalm praises God for his might and power - but also points to God's justice - God treats people with fairness.


Lord help me, with the little power that I have to treat others with fairness.
