Psalm 149
New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition

Psalm 149

Praise for God’s Goodness to Israel

1Praise the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song,
    his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
2Let Israel be glad in its Maker;
    let the children of Zion rejoice in their King.
3Let them praise his name with dancing,
    making melody to him with tambourine and lyre.
4For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;
    he adorns the humble with victory.
5Let the faithful exult in glory;
    let them sing for joy on their couches.
6Let the high praises of God be in their throats
    and two-edged swords in their hands,
7to execute vengeance on the nations
    and punishment on the peoples,
8to bind their kings with fetters
    and their nobles with chains of iron,
9to execute on them the judgment decreed.
    This is glory for all his faithful ones.
Praise the Lord!
