Psalms 149

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!
