Psalm 149:5 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Let the saints be joyful in glory - Let them be gloriously joyful: seeing themselves so honored and so successful, let them be joyful. God has put glory or honor upon them; let them give him the thanks due to his name.
Sing aloud upon their beds - While they are reclining on their couches. At their festal banquets, let them shout the praises of the Lord. In imitation of this we often have at our public entertainments the following words sung, taken from the Vulgate of Psalm 115:1 : Non Nobis Domine Non Nobis; sed Nomini Tuo da Gloriam! super Misericordia Tua et Veritate Tua. "Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy and for thy truth's sake." Let them mingle their feasting with Divine songs. This reclining on couches, while they take their food, is still practiced in Asiatic countries.

His Hand at last, the Hand once pierced for me, For ever holdeth mine; O Lord, no songs, no harps of heaven wil be Sweet as one word of Thine. Lord, altogether lovely! then at last High shall the guerdon be, Thy kiss outweigh the weary ages past Of hearts that brake for Thee. ...... Yet now I know Thee as the hidden Bread, The living …

Wisdom and Revelation.
But no one says, 'Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night,
By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me-- a prayer to the God of my life.
May your priests be clothed with your righteousness; may your faithful people sing for joy.'"
I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her faithful people will ever sing for joy.
But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever--yes, for ever and ever.'
