Sing to the Lord a new song.
Sing his praises in the assembly of the faithful.
O people of Jerusalem,* exult in your King.
accompanied by tambourine and harp.
he crowns the humble with victory.
Let them sing for joy as they lie on their beds.
and a sharp sword in their hands—
and punishment on the peoples,
and their leaders with iron chains,
This is the glorious privilege of his faithful ones.
Praise the Lord!
149:2 Hebrew Zion.
