    • The flip side of the theme: Those that are not subject to the Lord should fear His coming in judgment (97:2-6).

    • The Lord reigns: Let idolaters be ashamed (97:7).
    • The Lord reigns: Let His people rejoice (97:8-9)
  3. The Lord reigns: Let those who love Him hate evil and be glad in Him (97:10-12).
    • The command: Hate evil, you who love the Lord (97:10a).
    • The blessings promised for those who hate evil and love the Lord: preservation, light, and gladness (97:10b-11).
