Psalm 149 Revised 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 faithful! 2  Let Israel be glad in his Maker, let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King! 3  Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with timbrel and lyre! 4  For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with victory. 5  Let the faithful exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their couches.

6  Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands, 7  to wreak vengeance on the nations and chastisement 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 glory for all his faithful ones. Praise the Lord!
