For Jehovah taketh pleasure in his people; a he beautifieth the meek with salvation.
Let the godly exult in glory; let them shout for joy upon their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, b and a two-edged sword in their hand:
To execute vengeance against the nations, c [and] punishment among the peoples; d8
To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
To execute upon them e the judgment written. This honour have all his saints. f Hallelujah!
