Psalm 149
New King James Version Par ▾ 

Praise to God for His Salvation and Judgment

1Praise[a] the Lord!

Sing to the Lord a new song,
And His praise in the assembly of saints.

2Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3Let them praise His name with the dance;
Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.
4For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the [b]humble with salvation.

5Let the saints be joyful in glory;
Let them sing aloud on their beds.
6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
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 nobles with fetters of iron;
9To execute on them the written judgment—
This honor have all His saints.

[c]Praise the Lord!
