The (A)high praises of God shall be in their [a]mouths,
And a (B)two-edged (C)sword in their hands,
To (D)execute vengeance on the nations,
And punishment on the peoples,
To bind their kings (E)with chains,
And their (F)dignitaries with shackles of iron,
To (G)execute against them the judgment written.
This is an (H)honor for all His godly ones.
[b]Praise [c]the Lord!
