Psalmus 96 (97)
Language: Latin 
1  [Huic David, quando terra ejus restituta est.] 
   Dominus regnavit: exsultet terra;
   lætentur insulæ multæ.
2  Nubes et caligo in circuitu ejus;
   justitia et judicium correctio sedis ejus.
3  Ignis ante ipsum præcedet,
   et inflammabit in circuitu inimicos ejus.
4  Illuxerunt fulgura ejus orbi terræ;
   vidit, et commota est terra.
5  Montes sicut cera fluxerunt a facie Domini;
   a facie Domini omnis terra.
6  Annuntiaverunt cæli justitiam ejus,
   et viderunt omnes populi gloriam ejus.
7  Confundantur omnes qui adorant sculptilia,
   et qui gloriantur in simulacris suis.
   Adorate eum omnes angeli ejus.
8  Audivit, et lætata est Sion,
   et exsultaverunt filiæ Judæ
   propter judicia tua, Domine.
9  Quoniam tu Dominus altissimus super omnem terram;
   nimis exaltatus es super omnes deos.
10 Qui diligitis Dominum, odite malum:
   custodit Dominus animas sanctorum suorum;
   de manu peccatoris liberabit eos.
11 Lux orta est justo,
   et rectis corde lætitia.
12 Lætamini, justi, in Domino,
   et confitemini memoriæ sanctificationis ejus.]
