1 Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song; sing God's praise in the assembly of the faithful! 1 Praise the LORD. Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the saints.
2 Let Israel celebrate its maker; let Zion's children rejoice in their king! 2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
3 Let them praise God's name with dance; let them sing God's praise with the drum and lyre! 3 Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine and harp.
4 Because the LORD is pleased with his people, God will beautify the poor with saving help. 4 For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.
5 Let the faithful celebrate with glory; let them shout for joy on their beds. 5 Let the saints rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands, 6 May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,
7 to get revenge against the nations and punishment on the peoples, 7 to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
8 binding their rulers in chains and their officials in iron shackles, 8 to bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron,
9 achieving the justice written against them. That will be an honor for all God's faithful people. Praise the LORD! 9 to carry out the sentence written against them. This is the glory of all his saints. Praise the LORD.
