Praise for God’s Triumph

1 Hallelujah! Sing to the Lord a new song, His praise in the assembly of the godly. 2 Let Israel celebrate its Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their King. 3 Let them praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with tambourine and lyre. 4 For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He adorns the humble with salvation. 5 Let the godly celebrate in triumphal glory; let them shout for joy on their beds.
6 Let the exaltation of God be in their mouths and a two-edged sword in their hands, 7 inflicting vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, 8 binding their kings with chains and their dignitaries with iron shackles, 9 carrying out the judgment decreed against them. This honor is for all His godly people. Hallelujah!
