2 Let the Israelites ·be happy [rejoice] because of God, [L in] their Maker. Let the ·people of Jerusalem [L sons of Zion; C location of the Temple] rejoice ·because [L in] of their King. 3 They should praise him with dancing. They should ·sing praises [make a psalm] to him with tambourines and harps. 4 The Lord is pleased with his people; he ·saves [L endows with salvation/victory] the ·humble [needy]. 5 Let ·those who worship him [the saints/loyal ones] rejoice in his glory [C God’s manifest presence]. Let them sing for joy even in bed!
6 Let them ·shout his praise [L exalt God with their throats] with their two-edged swords in their hands. 7 They will ·punish [execute vengeance against] the nations and ·defeat [punish] the people. 8 They will put those kings in chains and ·those important men [honored men] in iron bands. 9 They will ·punish them as God has written [L accomplish a written judgment]. God is honored by ·all who worship him [his saints/loyal ones].
