Psalm 149 MSG

1 Hallelujah! Sing to God a brand-new song, praise him in the company of all who love him.
2 Let all Israel celebrate their Sovereign Creator, Zion's children exult in their King.
3 Let them praise his name in dance; strike up the band and make great music!
4 And why? Because God delights in his people, festoons plain folk with salvation garlands!
5 Let true lovers break out in praise, sing out from wherever they're sitting,
6 Shout the high praises of God, brandish their swords in the wild sword-dance -
7 A portent of vengeance on the God-defying nations, a signal that punishment's coming,
8 Their kings chained and hauled off to jail, their leaders behind bars for good,
9 The judgment on them carried out to the letter - and all who love God in the seat of honor! Hallelujah!
