Week 33 (Book 5): Reviewing the Third Week of Iyar - Psalms 97-99; 90:17, 105:1-2; 89:34

PSALMS (Introductions and Translations from Chabad.org):



Chapter 97

1. When the Lord will reveal His kingship, the earth will exult; the multitudes of islands will rejoice. 2. Clouds and dense darkness will surround Him; justice and mercy will be the foundation of His throne. 3. Fire will go before Him and consume His foes all around. 4. His lightnings will illuminate the world; the earth will see and tremble. 5. The mountains will melt like wax before the Lord, before the Master of all the earth. 6. The heavens will declare His justice, and all the nations will behold His glory. 7. All who worship graven images, who take pride in idols, will be ashamed; all idol worshippers will prostrate themselves before Him. 8. Zion will hear and rejoice, the towns of Judah will exult, because of Your judgments, O Lord. 9. For You, Lord, transcend all the earth; You are exceedingly exalted above all the supernal beings. 10. You who love the Lord, hate evil; He watches over the souls of His pious ones, He saves them from the hand of the wicked. 11. Light is sown for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart. 12. Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous, and extol His holy Name.


Chapter 98

This psalm describes how Israel will praise G-d for the Redemption.

1. A psalm. Sing to the Lord a new song, for He has performed wonders; His right hand and holy arm have wrought deliverance for Him. 2. The Lord has made known His salvation; He has revealed His justice before the eyes of the nations. 3. He has remembered His kindness and faithfulness to the House of Israel; all, from the farthest corners of the earth, witnessed the deliverance by our G-d. 4. Raise your voices in jubilation to the Lord, all the earth; burst into joyous song and chanting. 5. Sing to the Lord with a harp, with a harp and the sound of song. 6. With trumpets and the sound of the shofar, jubilate before the King, the Lord. 7. The sea and its fullness will roar in joy, the earth and its inhabitants. 8. The rivers will clap their hands, the mountains will sing together. 9. [They will rejoice] before the Lord, for He has come to judge the earth; He will judge the world with justice, and the nations with righteousness.


Chapter 99

This psalm refers to the wars of Gog and Magog, which will precede the Redemption.


1. When the Lord will reveal His kingship, the nations will tremble; the earth will quake before Him Who is enthroned upon the cherubim, 2. [before] the Lord Who is in Zion, Who is great and exalted above all the peoples. 3. They will extol Your Name which is great, awesome and holy. 4. And [they will praise] the might of the King Who loves justice. You have established uprightness; You have made [the laws of] justice and righteousness in Jacob. 5. Exalt the Lord our G-d, and bow down at His footstool; He is holy. 6. Moses and Aaron among His priests, and Samuel among those who invoke His Name, would call upon the Lord and He would answer them. 7. He would speak to them from a pillar of cloud; they observed His testimonies and the decrees which He gave them. 8. Lord our G-d, You have answered them; You were a forgiving G-d for their sake, yet bringing retribution for their own misdeeds. 9. Exalt the Lord our G-d, and bow down at His holy mountain, for the Lord our G-d is holy.
