101Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the end of the earth, 2you who go down to the sea, and all that fills it, 3the coastlands and their inhabitants.
Let the desert and its cities lift up their voice, the villages that 4Kedar inhabits; let the habitants of 5Sela sing for joy, let them shout from the top of the mountains.
Let them give glory to the LORD, and declare his praise in 6the coastlands.
137The LORD goes out like a mighty man, like a man of war 8he stirs up his zeal; he cries out, 9he shouts aloud, he shows himself mighty against his foes.
For a long time I have held my peace; I have kept still and restrained myself; now I will cry out 10like a woman in labor; I will gasp and pant.
1511I will lay waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn the rivers into islands,a and dry up the pools.
1612And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, 13the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them.
1714They are turned back and utterly put to shame, who trust in carved idols, who say to metal images, "You are our gods."
