1 Hallelujah. Sing unto the Lord a new song, his praise in the congregation of the pious.
2 Let Israel rejoice in his Maker: let the children of Zion exult in their King.
3 Let them praise his name in the dance: with the timbrel and harp let them sing praises unto him.
4 For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people; he will adorn the meek with salvation.
5 Let the pious be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their couches.
6 The exalted praises of God are in their mouth, and a twoedged sword is in their hand;
7 To execute vengeance on the nations, and chastisements on the people:
8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron:
9 To execute upon them the judgment which is written: this is an honor for all his pious servants. Hallelujah.
