Bible: Psalm 149

Psalm 149 1 

149:1 Praise the Lord!

Sing to the Lord a new song!

Praise him in the assembly of the godly! 2 

149:2 Let Israel rejoice in their Creator!

Let the people 3  of Zion delight in their king! 4 

149:3 Let them praise his name with dancing!

Let them sing praises to him to the accompaniment of the tambourine and harp!

149:4 For the Lord takes delight in his people;

he exalts the oppressed by delivering them. 5 

149:5 Let the godly rejoice because of their vindication! 6 

Let them shout for joy upon their beds! 7 

149:6 May they praise God

while they hold a two-edged sword in their hand, 8 

149:7 in order to take 9  revenge on the nations,

and punish foreigners.

149:8 They bind 10  their kings in chains,

and their nobles in iron shackles,

149:9 and execute the judgment to which their enemies 11  have been sentenced. 12 

All his loyal followers will be vindicated. 13 

Praise the Lord!
