The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with excellency; the Lord is clothed, he hath girded himself with strength: [therefore] also the world is firmly established, that it cannot be moved. Firmly established is thy throne from the beginning: from everlasting art thou [God]. The rivers have lifted up, O Lord, the rivers have lifted up their voice; the rivers lift up their waves. [But] more than the noise of great waters, than the mighty billows of the sea, is the Lord excellent on high. Thy testimonies are exceedingly steadfast: in thy house abideth holiness, O Lord! to the utmost length of days.
