1: Hallelujah! Sing unto Jehovah a new song; [sing] his praise in the congregation of the godly. 2: Let Israel rejoice in his Maker; let the sons of Zion be joyful in their King. 3: Let them praise his name in the dance; let them sing psalms unto him with the tambour and harp. 4: For Jehovah taketh pleasure in his people; he beautifieth the meek with salvation. 5: Let the godly exult in glory; let them shout for joy upon their beds. 6: Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand: 7: To execute vengeance against the nations, [and] punishment among the peoples; 8: To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9: To execute upon them the judgment written. This honour have all his saints. Hallelujah!
