|Israel Invoked to Praise Jehovah|
| ||PRAISE 1 ye Jehovah.|
Sing unto Jehovah a new song,
And his praise in the assembly of the saints.
| ||Let Israel rejoice in him that made him:|
Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
| ||Let them praise his name in the dance:|
Let them sing praises unto him with timbrel and harp.
| ||For Jehovah taketh pleasure in his people:|
He will beautify the meek with salvation. 2
| ||Let the saints exult in glory:|
Let them sing for joy upon their beds.
| ||Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, 3|
And a two-edged sword in their hand;
| ||To execute vengeance upon the nations,|
And punishments upon the peoples;
| ||To bind their kings with chains,|
And their nobles with fetters of iron;
| ||To execute upon them the judgment written:|
This 4 honor have all his saints.
Praise 5 ye Jehovah.
