1Praise the LORD .
2Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
3Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
4For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.
5Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.
6May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,
7to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
