1PRAISE THE Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, praise Him in the assembly of His saints!
2Let Israel rejoice in Him, their Maker; let Zion’s children triumph and be joyful in their King!
3Let them praise His name in chorus and choir and with the [single or group] dance; let them sing praises to Him with the tambourine and lyre!
4For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation and adorn the wretched with victory.
5Let the saints be joyful in the glory and beauty [which God confers upon them]; let them sing for joy upon their beds.
6Let the high praises of God be in their throats and a two-edged sword in their hands,
7To wreak vengeance upon the nations and chastisement upon the peoples,
8To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron,
9To execute upon them the judgment written. He [the Lord] is the honor of all His saints. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
