7To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;7To execute vengeance on the nations And punishment on the peoples,
8To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;8To bind their kings with chains And their nobles with fetters of iron,
9To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.9To execute on them the judgment written; This is an honor for all His godly ones. Praise the LORD!
