Psalms 149

1 Praise ye LORD. Sing to LORD a new song, and his praise in the assembly of the sanctified.

2 Let Israel rejoice in him who made him. Let the sons of Zion be joyful in their King.

3 Let them praise his name in the dance. Let them sing praises to him with timbrel and harp.

4 For LORD takes pleasure in his people. He will beautify the meek with salvation.

5 Let the sanctified exult in glory. Let them sing for joy upon their beds,

6 The high praises of God [are] in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand

7 to execute vengeance upon the nations, and punishments upon the peoples,

8 to bind their kings with chains, and their ranking men with fetters of iron,

9 to execute upon them the judgment written. All his sanctified have this honor. Praise ye LORD.
