New International Reader's Version

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.

詩篇 149

1ハレルヤ。
主をほめたたえ、新しい歌を歌いましょう。
神の民よ。賛美の歌声を上げなさい。
イスラエルよ、あなたを造られた主を喜びなさい。
エルサレムの人々よ、王であるお方の前で喜びなさい。
タンバリンと竪琴の伴奏で、
踊りながら神の御名をほめたたえなさい。

4-5 主はご自分の民を喜んで受け入れ、
謙虚な者を救ってくださるのです。
この光栄を思い浮かべて、
神の民が感謝しますように。
寝床でも、喜びのあまり歌いだしますように。
6-7 神の民よ、主をあがめなさい。
神に代わって両刃の剣を取り、国々を罰しなさい。
王や指導者を鉄の鎖で縛り上げ、
宣告されたとおりに処罰しなさい。
神の民の栄光は神ご自身です。
ハレルヤ。主をほめたたえましょう。
