Psalm 149
New American Standard Bible►► 

Israel Invoked to Praise the LORD.

1[a]Praise [b]the LORD!

Sing a new song to the LORD,

And His praise in the congregation of the godly ones.

2Israel shall be joyful in his Maker;

The sons of Zion shall rejoice in their King.

3They shall praise His name with dancing;

They shall sing praises to Him with tambourine and lyre.

4For the LORD takes pleasure in His people;

He will glorify the lowly with salvation.

5The godly ones shall be jubilant in glory;

They shall sing for joy on their beds.

6The high praises of God shall be in their [c]mouths,

And a two-edged sword in their hands,

7To execute vengeance on the nations,

And punishment on the peoples,

8To bind their kings with chains,

And their dignitaries with shackles of iron,

9To execute against them the judgment written.

This is an honor for all His godly ones.

[d]Praise [e]the LORD!

[a] 1 Or Hallelujah!
[b] 1 Heb YAH
[c] 6 Lit throat
[d] 9 Or Hallelujah!
[e] 9 Heb YAH
