1 Praise the LORD. [^1] Sing to the LORD a new song, ¶ his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.
2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; ¶ let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
3 Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
4 For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.
5 Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.
6 May the praise of God be in their mouths ¶ and a double-edged sword in their hands,
7 to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
8 to bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron,
9 to carry out the sentence written against them — this is the glory of all his faithful people. ¶ Praise the LORD.
