Psalm 149 Bible in Basic English

Israel Exhorted to Praise the LORD

149 1  Let the Lord be praised. Make a new song to the Lord, let his praise be in the meeting of his saints. 2  Let Israel have joy in his maker; let the children of Zion be glad in their King. 3  Let them give praise to his name in the dance: let them make melody to him with instruments of brass and corded instruments of music. 4  For the Lord has pleasure in his people: he gives the poor in spirit a crown of salvation. 5  Let the saints have joy and glory: let them give cries of joy on their beds.

6  Let the high praises of God be in their mouths, and a two-edged sword in their hands; 7  To give the nations the reward of their sins, and the peoples their punishment; 8  To put their kings in chains, and their rulers in bands of iron; 9  To give them the punishment which is in the holy writings: this honour is given to all his saints. Praise be to the Lord.
