Psalm 149
NET BibleEnglish Standard Version
1Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song! Praise him in the assembly of the godly! 1Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the godly!
2Let Israel rejoice in their Creator! Let the people of Zion delight in their king! 2Let Israel be glad in his Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!
3Let them praise his name with dancing! Let them sing praises to him to the accompaniment of the tambourine and harp! 3Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!
4For the LORD takes delight in his people; he exalts the oppressed by delivering them. 4For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation.
5Let the godly rejoice because of their vindication! Let them shout for joy upon their beds! 5Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds.
6May they praise God while they hold a two-edged sword in their hand, 6Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands,
7in order to take revenge on the nations, and punish foreigners. 7to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples,
8They bind their kings in chains, and their nobles in iron shackles, 8to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
9and execute the judgment to which their enemies have been sentenced. All his loyal followers will be vindicated. Praise the LORD! 9to execute on them the judgment written! This is honor for all his godly ones. Praise the LORD!
