1aPraisebthe LORD ! Sing to the LORD a 1newsong, And His praise2in the congregation of the godlyones.
Let Israel be glad in 3his Maker ; Let the sons of Zionrejoice in their 4King.
Let them praise His name with 5dancing ; Let them singpraises to Him with 6timbrel and lyre.
For the LORD7takespleasure in His people ; He will 8beautify the afflictedones with salvation.
Let the 9godlyonesexult in glory ; Let them 10sing for joy on their beds.
Let the 11highpraises of God be in their cmouth, And a 12two-edged13sword in their hand,
To 14executevengeance on the nations And punishment on the peoples,
To bind their kings15with chains And their 16nobles with fetters of iron,
To 17execute on them the judgmentwritten ; This is an 18honor for all His godlyones. dPraiseethe LORD !
