Asked on Quora: What chapter and verse of the Bible helps when you are sad?
1| Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
2| Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3| Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
4| For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
5| Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
6| Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
7| To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
8| To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9| To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
The new song is the pure doctrine of the Most High, also referenced in Rev 14:3-4. The saints singing praises on their beds is a reference to them being at rest in the Kingdom of Heaven. Executing vengeance upon the heathen is a reference to the impending day of judgement, spoken of in the book of Revelation and also by many other prophets including Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, etc. Binding their kings with chains is also a reference to Rev 13:10 | He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
