|<< Psalm 149 >>|
GOD'S WORD ® Translation
Hallelujah! Sing a new song to the LORD. Sing his praise in the assembly of godly people.
2Let Israel find joy in their creator. Let the people of Zion rejoice over their king.
3Let them praise his name with dancing. Let them make music to him with tambourines and lyres,
4because the LORD takes pleasure in his people. He crowns those who are oppressed with victory.
5Let godly people triumph in glory. Let them sing for joy on their beds.
6Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands
7to take vengeance on the nations, to punish the people of the world,
8to put their kings in chains and their leaders in iron shackles,
9to carry out the judgment that is written against them. This is an honor that belongs to all his godly ones. Hallelujah!
