Psalms 149
Praise to God for His Salvation and Judgment
1Praise the Lord!
#Lev. 10:3; Eph. 2:17Sing to the Lord a new song,
And His praise in the assembly of saints.
2Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
Let the children of Zion be joyful in their #Ps. 33:3King.
3#Judg. 8:23; Zech. 9:9; Matt. 21:5Let them praise His name with the dance;
Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.
4For #Ex. 15:20; Ps. 81:2the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
#Ps. 35:27He will beautify the humble with salvation.
5Let the saints be joyful in glory;
Let them #Ps. 132:16; Is. 61:3sing aloud on their beds.
6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And #Job 35:10a two-edged sword in their hand,
7To execute vengeance on the nations,
And punishments on the peoples;
8To bind their kings with chains,
And their nobles with fetters of iron;
9#Heb. 4:12; Rev. 1:16To execute on them the written judgment—
#Deut. 7:1, 2; Ezek. 28:26This honor have all His saints.
Praise the Lord!
