1Praise the LORD!
Sing to the LORD a new song;
sing God’s praise in the assembly of the faithful!
2Let Israel celebrate its maker;
let Zion’s children rejoice in their king!
3Let them praise God’s name with dance;
let them sing God’s praise with the drum and lyre!
4Because the LORD is pleased with his people,
God will beautify the poor with saving help.
5Let the faithful celebrate with glory;
let them shout for joy on their beds.#Heb uncertain
6Let the high praises of God be in their mouths
and a double-edged sword in their hands,
7to get revenge against the nations
and punishment on the peoples,
8binding their rulers in chains
and their officials in iron shackles,
9achieving the justice
written against them.
That will be an honor for all God’s faithful people.
Praise the LORD!
