Tehillim (Psalms) 149
1Praise Yah! Sing to יהוה a new song, His praise in an assembly of lovingly-committed ones.
2Let Yisra’ĕl rejoice in their Maker; Let the children of Tsiyon exult in their Sovereign.
3Let them praise His Name in a dance; Let them sing praises to Him with the tambourine and lyre.
4For יהוה takes pleasure in His people; He embellishes the meek ones with deliverance.
5Let the lovingly-committed ones exult in esteem; Let them sing aloud on their beds.
6Let the exaltation of Ěl be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand,
7To execute vengeance on the nations, Punishments on the peoples;
8To bind their sovereigns with chains, And their nobles with iron bands;
9To execute on them the written right-ruling; A splendour it is for all His lovingly-committed ones. Praise Yah!
