PSALM 149Sing to the Lord a New Song149:1 Praise the Lord!Sing to the Lord a new song,his praise in the assembly of the godly! 2 Let Israel be glad in his Maker;let the children of Zion rejoice in their King! 3 Let them praise his name with dancing,making melody to him with tambourine and lyre! 4 For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;he adorns the humble with salvation. 5 Let the godly exult in glory;let them sing for joy on their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their throatsand two-edged swords in their hands, 7 to execute vengeance on the nationsand punishments on the peoples, 8 to bind their kings with chainsand their nobles with fetters of iron, 9 to execute on them the judgment written!This is honor for all his godly ones.Praise the Lord!
