New English Translation
1 Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song! Praise him in the assembly of the godly!
2 Let Israel rejoice in their Creator! Let the people of Zion delight in their king!
3 Let them praise his name with dancing! Let them sing praises to him to the accompaniment of the tambourine and harp!
4 For the LORD takes delight in his people; he exalts the oppressed by delivering them.
5 Let the godly rejoice because of their vindication! Let them shout for joy upon their beds!
6 May they praise God while they hold a two-edged sword in their hand,
7 in order to take revenge on the nations, and punish foreigners.
8 They bind their kings in chains, and their nobles in iron shackles,
9 and execute the judgment to which their enemies have been sentenced. All his loyal followers will be vindicated. Praise the LORD!
