for ADONAI takes delight in his people, he crowns the humble with salvation.
Let the faithful exult gloriously, let them sing for joy on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats, but a two-edged sword in their hands
to carry out vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings with chains and put their nobles in irons,
to execute the judgments decreed for them; for this will glorify all his faithful. Halleluyah!
