For the LORD takes delight1 in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.25
Let his faithful people rejoice3 in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.46
May the praise of God be in their mouths5 and a double-edged6 sword in their hands,77
to inflict vengeance8 on the nations and punishment9 on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters,10 their nobles with shackles of iron,119
to carry out the sentence written against them--12 this is the glory of all his faithful people.13 Praise the LORD.
