Now we come to the role of god's people in praising him. God takes pleasure in his people, he loves helping them yet he puts much responsibility on them as well. he asks us to execute punishments on peoples and all manner of judgements from his hand. God will have judgements at the end of time, but we overlook the fact we will be part of that process. We will not only judge the world but angels as well (1Cor. 6:1-3). We might think ourselves to be lowly but in God's eyes we are of great value and will participate in the Kingdom to come!
Sing to the Lord a New Song
1 Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of the godly! 2 Let Israel be glad in his Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their King! 3 Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre! 4 For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation. 5 Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands, 7 to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples, 8 to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron, 9 to execute on them the judgment written! This is honor for all his godly ones. Praise the Lord!
