because the LORD takes pleasure in his people. He crowns those who are oppressed with victory.
Let godly people triumph in glory. Let them sing for joy on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands
to take vengeance on the nations, to punish the people of the world,
to put their kings in chains and their leaders in iron shackles,
to carry out the judgment that is written against them. This is an honor that belongs to all his godly ones. Hallelujah!
