Hallelujah. Sing unto the Lord a new song, his praise in the congregation of the pious. Let Israel rejoice in his Maker: let the children of Zion exult in their King. Let them praise his name in the dance: with the timbrel and harp let them sing praises unto him. For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people; he will adorn the meek with salvation. Let the pious be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their couches. The exalted praises of God are in their mouth, and a two-edged sword is in their hand; To execute vengeance on the nations, and chastisements on the people: To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron: To execute upon them the judgment [which is] written: this is an honor for all his pious servants. Hallelujah.
