Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands, to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples, to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron, to execute on them the judgment written! This is honor for all his godly ones. Praise the LORD!
LORD, to praise You is to tear down the strongholds of the enemy. It is a powerful weapon that You have given me to assault the enemy. Praise is the weapon against ridicule and shame, against pride and lust, against greed and covetousness, against anger and rage. It saps the strength of the evil one, sucks the blood from his veins, buckles his legs and causes him to flee. It gives me the power to resist.
So, LORD, let Your praises be foremost on my tongue today. May I sing Your praise and do Your praise all day long. PRAISE YOUR HOLY NAME!
