Psalm 149

1 Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song; sing God's praise in the assembly of the faithful!
2 Let Israel celebrate its maker; let Zion's children rejoice in their king!
3 Let them praise God's name with dance; let them sing God's praise with the drum and lyre!
4 Because the LORD is pleased with his people, God will beautify the poor with saving help.
5 Let the faithful celebrate with glory; let them shout for joy on their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,
7 to get revenge against the nations and punishment on the peoples,
8 binding their rulers in chains and their officials in iron shackles,
9 achieving the justice written against them. That will be an honor for all God's faithful people. Praise the LORD!
