Psalm 149
International Standard VersionEnglish Standard Version
1Hallelujah! Sing a new song to the LORD, praising him where the godly gather together.1Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the godly!
2May Israel rejoice in its Maker, and Zion's descendants in their King!2Let Israel be glad in his Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!
3May they praise his name with dancing, chanting songs to him with tambourines and lyres.3Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!
4For the LORD is pleased with his people; he beautifies the afflicted with salvation.4For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation.
5May those he loves be exalted, singing for joy on their couches.5Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds.
6Let high praises to God be heard in their throats, while they wield two-edged swords in their hands6Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands,
7as they bring retribution to nations and punishment to peoples,7to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples,
8binding their kings with chains, their officials with iron bands,8to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
9and executing the judgment written against them. This is honor for all the ones he loves. Hallelujah!9to execute on them the judgment written! This is honor for all his godly ones. Praise the LORD!
