1A psalm. Sing a new song to the Lord, for he has done marvelous deeds.#Ps 96:1; Is 42:10. His right hand and holy arm have won the victory.#Marvelous deeds
victory: the conquest of all threats to the peaceful existence of Israel, depicted in the Psalms variously as a cosmic force such as sea, or nations bent on Israel’s destruction, or evildoers seemingly triumphant. His right hand and holy arm: God is pictured as a powerful warrior.#Is 59:16; 63:5.
