|Ps 149:1 Praise the LORD!
Sing to the LORD a new song,
And His praise in the congregation of the godly ones.
|Ps 149:2 Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King.
|Ps 149:3 Let them praise His name with dancing;
Let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre.
|Ps 149:4 For the LORD takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.
|Ps 149:5 ¶ Let the godly ones exult in glory;
Let them sing for joy on their beds.
|Ps 149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
|Ps 149:7 To execute vengeance on the nations
And punishment on the peoples,
|Ps 149:8 To bind their kings with chains
And their nobles with fetters of iron,
|Ps 149:9 To execute on them the judgment written;
This is an honor for all His godly ones.
Praise the LORD!
