1Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD 2a new song, his praise in 3the assembly of the godly!
Let Israel 4be glad in 5his Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their 6King!
Let them praise his name with 7dancing, making melody to him with 8tambourine and 9lyre!
For the LORD 10takes pleasure in his people; he 11adorns the humble with salvation.
Let the godly exult in glory; let them 12sing for joy on their 13beds.
Let 14the high praises of God be in their throats and 15two-edged swords in their hands,
to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples,
to bind their kings with 16chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
to execute on them the judgment 17written! 18This is honor for all his godly ones. 19Praise the LORD!
