Holman Christian Standard Bible
1Hallelujah! Sing to the LORD a new song, His praise in the assembly of the godly.
2Let Israel celebrate its Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their King.
3Let them praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with tambourine and lyre.
4For Yahweh takes pleasure in His people; He adorns the humble with salvation.
5Let the godly celebrate in triumphal glory; let them shout for joy on their beds.
6Let the exaltation of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,
7inflicting vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
8binding their kings with chains and their dignitaries with iron shackles,
9carrying out the judgment decreed against them. This honor is for all His godly people. Hallelujah!
