[NAS]  [VSN]  [<<]  [>>]
Psalm 149

Israel Invoked to Praise the LORD.

1 Praise the LORD!
          Sing to the LORD a new song,
          And His praise in the congregation of the godly ones.

2 Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
          Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King.

3 Let them praise His name with dancing;
          Let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre.

4 For the LORD takes pleasure in His people;
          He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.

5 Let the godly ones exult in glory;
          Let them sing for joy on their beds.

6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
          And a two-edged sword in their hand,

7 To execute vengeance on the nations
          And punishment 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 an honor for all His godly ones.
          Praise the LORD!
