|<< Psalms 149 >>|
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
Halelu-JAH. Sing unto the LORD a new song, let his praise be in the congregation of the merciful.
Let Israel rejoice with his Maker; let the sons of Zion be joyful with their King.
Let them praise his name in the dance; let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he will beautify the humble with saving health.
The merciful shall be joyful with glory; they shall sing aloud upon their beds.
6The high praises of God shall be in their mouth and a two-edged sword in their hand,
7to execute vengeance upon the Gentiles and punishments upon the peoples,
8to imprison their kings with fetters and their nobles with chains of iron,
9to execute upon them the judgment written: this shall be glory for all his merciful ones. Halelu-JAH.
