Psalm 149

Sing to the Lord a New Song

1 1Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD 2a new song, his praise in 3the assembly of the godly!
2 Let Israel 4be glad in 5his Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their 6King!
3 Let them praise his name with 7dancing, making melody to him with 8tambourine and 9lyre!
4 For the LORD 10takes pleasure in his people; he 11adorns the humble with salvation.
5 Let the godly exult in glory; let them 12sing for joy on their 13beds.
6 Let 14the high praises of God be in their throats and 15two-edged swords in their hands,
7 to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples,
8 to bind their kings with 16chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
9 to execute on them the judgment 17written! 18This is honor for all his godly ones. 19Praise the LORD!
