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.

New American Standard Bible

Psalm 149

Israel Invoked to Praise the Lord.

1[a]Praise [b]the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song,
And His praise in the congregation of the godly ones.
Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King.
Let them praise His name with dancing;
Let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre.
For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the afflicted ones 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 [c]mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
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 an honor for all His godly ones.
[d]Praise [e]the Lord!
