1 Praise the Lord. Sing a new song to the Lord. Sing praise to him in the community of his faithful people. 1 Praise the LORD. Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the saints.
2 Let Israel be filled with joy because God is their Maker. Let the people of Zion be glad because he is 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 harps and tambourines. 3 Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine and harp.
4 The LORD takes delight in his people. He saves those who aren't proud. He makes them feel like kings. 4 For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.
5 Let his faithful people be filled with joy because of that honor. Let them sing with joy even when they are lying in bed. 5 Let the saints rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.
6 May they praise God with their mouths. May they hold in their hands a sword that has two edges. 6 May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,
