The Lord has taken away the authority of evil people.
    He has broken the power of rulers.
When they became angry, they struck down nations.
    Their blows never stopped.
In their anger they brought nations under their control.
    They attacked them again and again.
All the lands now enjoy peace and rest.
    They break out into singing.
