Psalm 149
King James BibleNET Bible
1Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.1Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song! Praise him in the assembly of the godly!
2Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.2Let Israel rejoice in their Creator! Let the people of Zion delight in their king!
3Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.3Let them praise his name with dancing! Let them sing praises to him to the accompaniment of the tambourine and harp!
4For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.4For the LORD takes delight in his people; he exalts the oppressed by delivering them.
5Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.5Let the godly rejoice because of their vindication! Let them shout for joy upon their beds!
6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;6May they praise God while they hold a two-edged sword in their hand,
7To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;7in order to take revenge on the nations, and punish foreigners.
8To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;8They bind their kings in chains, and their nobles in iron shackles,
9To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.9and execute the judgment to which their enemies have been sentenced. All his loyal followers will be vindicated. Praise the LORD!
