Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song; sing God's praise in the assembly of the faithful!
Let Israel celebrate its maker; let Zion's children rejoice in their king!
Let them praise God's name with dance; let them sing God's praise with the drum and lyre!
Because the LORD is pleased with his people, God will beautify the poor with saving help.
Let the faithful celebrate with glory; let them shout for joy on their beds.a6
Let the high praises of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,
to get revenge against the nations and punishment on the peoples,
binding their rulers in chains and their officials in iron shackles,
achieving the justice written against them. That will be an honor for all God's faithful people. Praise the LORD!
