Psalm 149
NASB 1977
Israel Invoked to Praise the LORD.

     1Praise the LORD!
            Sing to the LORD a new song,
            And His praise in the congregation of the godly ones.

     2Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
            Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King.

     3Let them praise His name with dancing;
            Let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre.

     4For the LORD takes pleasure in His people;
            He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.

     5Let the godly ones exult in glory;
            Let them sing for joy 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 punishment on the peoples;

     8To bind their kings with chains,
            And their nobles with fetters of iron;

     9To execute on them the judgment written;
            This is an honor for all His godly ones.
            Praise the LORD!
