Psalm 149
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Yahweh Takes Pleasure in His People

1[†]Praise Yah!

Sing to Yahweh a new song,

His praise in the assembly of the holy ones.

2Let Israel be glad in his Maker;

Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King.

3Let them praise His name with dancing;

With tambourine and lyre let them sing praises to Him.

4For Yahweh takes pleasure in His people;

He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.

5Let the holy ones exult in glory;

Let them sing for joy on their beds.

6Let the exaltations of God be in their throats,

And a two-edged sword in their hand,

7To execute vengeance on the nations

And punishments on the peoples,

8To bind their kings with chains

And their honored men with fetters of iron,

9To execute on them the judgment written;

This is the majesty of all His holy ones.

[†]Praise Yah!

1 Or Hallelujah!
9 Or Hallelujah!
