Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Halleluyah! Sing to ADONAI a new song, his 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 Isra'el rejoice in their maker, let Tziyon's children take joy in their king. 2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
3 Let them praise his name with dancing, make melody to him with tambourine and lyre; 3 Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine and harp.
4 for ADONAI takes delight in his people, he crowns the humble with salvation. 4 For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.
5 Let the faithful exult gloriously, let them sing 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 throats, but a two-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 carry out vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, 7 to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
8 to bind their kings with chains and put their nobles in irons, 8 to bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron,
9 to execute the judgments decreed for them; for this will glorify all his faithful. Halleluyah! 9 to carry out the sentence written against them. This is the glory of all his saints. Praise the LORD.
