English Revised Version
Sing to the Lord a New Song!
(Psalm 98:1-9; Isaiah 42:10-17)
1Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the assembly of the 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 exult in glory: let them sing for joy upon their beds.
6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;
7To execute vengeance upon the nations, and punishments upon the peoples;
8To bind their king's 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.
