(5) The two clauses are directly parallel:

"Let the chasidim raise a cry in glory:

Let them sing aloud upon their couches."

Either the rejoicing is carried far into the night, and when retired to rest the happy people burst 'out anew into singing; or (see Hosea 7:14), the couches may rather be the divans where feasts were held.

Verse 5. - Let the saints be joyful in glory. Therefore let God's saints at the present time - his restored people, who have just had a fresh deliverance - rejoice, in the "glory" that covers them - rejoice and give God thanks for it. Let them sing aloud upon their beds. Not, as in former days, weeping through the long night (Psalm 6:6; Psalm 77:2-6), and watering their couches with their tears, but, like Paul and Silas (Acts 16:25), singing hymns of praise to God "at midnight" as they rest upon their beds.
