Amplified Bible

Psalm 149

Israel Invoked to Praise the Lord.

1Praise the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song,
And praise Him in the congregation of His godly ones (believers).

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
Let Zion’s children rejoice in their King.

Let them praise His name with dancing;
Let them sing praises to Him with the tambourine and lyre.

For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the humble with salvation.


Let the godly ones exult in glory;
Let them sing for joy on their beds.

Let the high praises of God be in their throats,
And a two-edged sword in their hands,

To execute vengeance on the nations
And punishment on the peoples,

To bind their kings with chains
And their nobles with fetters of iron,

To execute on them the judgment written.
This is the honor for all His godly ones.
Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)

Zabbuli 149

1Mutendereze Mukama!

Muyimbire Mukama oluyimba oluggya,
    mumutenderereze wamu n’ekibiina ky’abatukuvu.

Isirayiri asanyukirenga eyamutonda;
    n’abantu ba Sayuuni bajagulize Kabaka waabwe!
Batenderezenga erinnya lye nga bwe bazina,
    bamutenderezenga nga bwe bakuba ennanga n’ebitaasa.
Kubanga Mukama asanyukira abantu be,
    n’abawombeefu abawa engule ey’obulokozi.
Abatuukirivu bajagulizenga mu kitiibwa kino;
    bayimbire ku bitanda byabwe olw’essanyu.

Batenderezenga Katonda waabwe,
    bakwate ekitala eky’obwogi obubiri,
bawoolere eggwanga,
    babonereze n’amawanga,
bateeke bakabaka baago mu njegere,
    n’abakungu baago babasibe amagulu n’ebyuma,
babasalire omusango ogwabawandiikirwa.
    Kino kye kitiibwa ky’abatukuvu be bonna.

Mutendereze Mukama.
