1Praise the Lord. Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.2Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King.3Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp.4For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.5Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.6May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,7to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,8to bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron,9to carry out the sentence written against them— this is the glory of all his faithful people. Praise the Lord.
King James Version
1Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.2Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.3Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.4For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.5Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;7To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;8To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;9To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
New Int. Readers Version
1Praise the Lord. Sing a new song to the Lord. Sing praise to him in the community of his faithful people.2Let Israel be filled with joy because God is their Maker. Let the people of Zion be glad because he is their King.3Let them praise his name with dancing. Let them make music to him with harps and tambourines.4The Lord takes delight in his people. He saves those who aren't proud. He makes them feel like kings.5Let his faithful people be filled with joy because of that honor. Let them sing with joy even when they are lying in bed.6May they praise God with their mouths. May they hold in their hands a sword that has two edges.7Let them pay the nations back. Let them punish the people of the earth.8Let them put the kings of those nations in chains. Let them put their nobles in iron chains.9Let them carry out God's sentence against the nations. That will bring glory to all of his faithful people. Praise the Lord.
