Israel Exhorted to Praise the Lord
1Praise ye the Lord.
Sing unto the Lord a new song,
and his praise in the congregation of saints.
2Let Israel rejoice in him that made him:
let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3Let them praise his name in the dance:
let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
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.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
and a two-edged sword in their hand;
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 honor have all his saints.
Praise ye the Lord.
