1 Praise the LORD. Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the holy ones. 2 Let Israel rejoice in him who made them. Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3 Let them praise his name in the dance. Let them sing praises to him with tambourine and harp. 4 For the LORD takes pleasure in his people. He crowns the humble with salvation. 5 Let the holy ones rejoice in honor. Let them sing for joy on their beds.
6 May the high praises of God be in their mouths, and a two-edged sword in their hand; 7 To execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; 8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 to execute on them the written judgment. All his holy ones have this honor. Praise the LORD.
