Psalm 149

Psalm 149

Praise the Lord.

Sing a new song to the Lord.
    Sing praise to him in the assembly of his faithful people.

Let Israel be filled with joy because God is their Maker.
    Let the people of Zion be glad because he is their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing.
    Let them make music to him with harps and tambourines.
The Lord takes delight in his people.
    He awards with victory those who are humble.
Let his faithful people be filled with joy because of that honor.
    Let them sing for joy even when they are lying in bed.

May they praise God with their mouths.
    May they hold in their hands a sword that has two edges.
Let them pay the nations back.
    Let them punish the people of the earth.
Let them put the kings of those nations in chains.
    Let them put their nobles in iron chains.
Let them carry out God’s sentence against those nations.
    This will bring glory to all his faithful people.

Praise the Lord.

诗篇 149

以色列要赞美上帝

1你们要赞美耶和华!
要向耶和华唱新歌,
在祂忠心子民的聚会中颂赞祂!
愿以色列因他的造物主而欢喜,
愿锡安的百姓因他们的君王而快乐。
愿他们跳舞赞美祂的名,
击鼓弹琴歌颂祂。
因为耶和华喜爱祂的子民,
祂赐尊荣给谦卑的人,
使他们得胜。
愿祂忠心的子民因所得的荣耀而欢乐,
愿他们躺卧在床上的时候也欢唱。
6-7 愿他们高声颂赞耶和华,
手握两刃利剑向列国复仇,
在列邦中施行惩罚,
用铁链捆绑他们的君王,
用铁铐锁住他们的首领,
按他们的罪状审判他们。
这就是祂忠心的子民所得的荣耀。
你们要赞美耶和华!
