Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the faithful!
Let Israel be glad in his Maker, let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King!
Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with timbrel and lyre!
For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with victory.
Let the faithful exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their couches.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands,
to wreak vengeance on the nations and chastisement on the peoples,
to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
to execute on them the judgment written! This is glory for all his faithful ones. Praise the LORD!
