Psalm 149 King James Version

Israel Exhorted to Praise the LORD

149 1  Praise [1] ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints. 2  Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3  Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. 4  For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. 5  Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

6  Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, [2] and a twoedged sword in their hand; 7  To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; 8  To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9  To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.


[1] 149:1 Praise...: Heb. Hallelujah

[2] 149:6 mouth: Heb. throat
