[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Psa 99:1 The LORD is king, and the people tremble. He sits on his throne above the winged creatures, and the earth shakes.
Psa 99:2 The LORD is mighty in Zion; he is supreme over all the nations.
Psa 99:3 Everyone will praise his great and majestic name. Holy is he!
Psa 99:4 Mighty king, you love what is right; you have established justice in Israel; you have brought righteousness and fairness.
Psa 99:5 Praise the LORD our God; worship before his throne! Holy is he!
Psa 99:6 Moses and Aaron were his priests, and Samuel was one who prayed to him; they called to the LORD, and he answered them.
Psa 99:7 He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud; they obeyed the laws and commands that he gave them.
Psa 99:8 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.
Psa 99:9 Praise the LORD our God, and worship at his sacred hill! The LORD our God is holy.
