GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 Hallelujah! Sing a new song to the LORD. Sing his praise in the assembly of godly people. 1 Praise the LORD. Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the saints.
2 Let Israel find joy in their creator. Let the people of Zion rejoice over 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. Let them make music to him with tambourines and lyres, 3 Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine and harp.
4 because the LORD takes pleasure in his people. He crowns those who are oppressed with victory. 4 For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.
5 Let godly people triumph in glory. 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 and two-edged swords in their hands 6 May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,
7 to take vengeance on the nations, to punish the people of the world, 7 to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
8 to put their kings in chains and their leaders in iron shackles, 8 to bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron,
9 to carry out the judgment that is written against them. This is an honor that belongs to all his godly ones. Hallelujah! 9 to carry out the sentence written against them. This is the glory of all his saints. Praise the LORD.
