2Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.#in him…: Heb. in his Makers
3Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.#in…: or, with the pipe
4For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
5Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;#mouth: Heb. throat
7To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
8To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.
