Praise to God for His Salvation and Judgment

  1Praise the Lord!
  Sing to the Lord a new song,
   And His praise in the assembly of saints.
  2Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
   Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
   3Let them praise His name with the dance;
   Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.
   4For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
   He will beautify the humble with salvation.
  5Let the saints be joyful in glory;
   Let them sing aloud on their beds.
   6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
   And a two-edged sword in their hand,
   7To execute vengeance on the nations,
   And punishments on the peoples;
   8To bind their kings with chains,
   And their nobles with fetters of iron;
   9To execute on them the written judgment—
   This honor have all His saints.
  Praise the Lord!
