1 Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song! Praise him in the assembly of the godly!
1 Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
1 Hallelujah! Sing a new song to the LORD, praising him where the godly gather together.
2 Let Israel rejoice in their Creator! Let the people of Zion delight in their king!
2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
2 May Israel rejoice in its Maker, and Zion's descendants in their King!
3 Let them praise his name with dancing! Let them sing praises to him to the accompaniment of the tambourine and harp!
3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
3 May they praise his name with dancing, chanting songs to him with tambourines and lyres.
4 For the Lord takes delight in his people; he exalts the oppressed by delivering them.
4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
4 For the LORD is pleased with his people; he beautifies the afflicted with salvation.
5 Let the godly rejoice because of their vindication! Let them shout for joy upon their beds!
5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
5 May those he loves be exalted, singing for joy on their couches.
6 May they praise God while they hold a two-edged sword in their hand,
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
6 Let high praises to God be heard in their throats, while they wield two-edged swords in their hands
7 in order to take revenge on the nations, and punish foreigners.
7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
7 as they bring retribution to nations and punishment to nations,
8 They bind their kings in chains, and their nobles in iron shackles,
8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
8 binding their kings with chains, their officials with iron bands,
9 and execute the judgment to which their enemies have been sentenced. All his loyal followers will be vindicated. Praise the Lord!
9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
9 and executing the judgment written against them. This is honor for all the ones he loves. Hallelujah!
