1 Halelu-JAH. Sing unto the LORD a new song, let his praise be in the congregation of the merciful. 2 Let Israel rejoice with his Maker; let the sons of Zion be joyful with their King. 3 Let them praise his name in the dance; let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. 4 For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he will beautify the humble with saving health. 5 The merciful shall be joyful with glory; they shall sing aloud upon their beds.
6 The high praises of God shall be in their mouth and a two-edged sword in their hand, 7 to execute vengeance upon the Gentiles and punishments upon the peoples, 8 to imprison their kings with fetters and their nobles with chains of iron, 9 to execute upon them the judgment written: this shall be glory for all his merciful ones. Halelu-JAH.
