Psalm 149 English Standard Version

Israel Exhorted to Praise the LORD

149 1  Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of the godly! 2  Let Israel be glad in his Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their King! 3  Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre! 4  For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation. 5  Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds.

6  Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands, 7  to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments 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 honor for all his godly ones. Praise the Lord!
