Psalm 149

1 Praise the Lord! Sing a new song to the Lord; sing his praise in the meeting of his people.
2 Let the Israelites be happy because of God, their Maker. Let the people of Jerusalem rejoice because of their King.
3 They should praise him with dancing. They should sing praises to him with tambourines and harps.
4 The Lord is pleased with his people; he saves the humble.
5 Let those who worship him rejoice in his glory. Let them sing for joy even in bed!
6 Let them shout his praise with their two-edged swords in their hands.
7 They will punish the nations and defeat the people.
8 They will put those kings in chains and those important men in iron bands.
9 They will punish them as God has written. God is honored by all who worship him.
