Psalm 149

1 Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, and His praise in the assembly of saints.

2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

3 Let them praise His name with the dance; let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.

4 For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation.

5 Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud on their beds.

6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand,

7 To execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples;

8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

9 To execute on them the written judgment; this honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!
