Psalm 149

New English Translation

   1 Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song! Praise him in the assembly of the godly!
   2 Let Israel rejoice in their Creator! Let the people of Zion delight in their king!
   3 Let them praise his name with dancing! Let them sing praises to him to the accompaniment of the tambourine and harp!
   4 For the LORD takes delight in his people; he exalts the oppressed by delivering them.
   5 Let the godly rejoice because of their vindication! Let them shout for joy upon their beds!
   6 May they praise God while they hold a two-edged sword in their hand,
   7 in order to take revenge on the nations, and punish foreigners.
   8 They bind their kings in chains, and their nobles in iron shackles,
   9 and execute the judgment to which their enemies have been sentenced. All his loyal followers will be vindicated. Praise the LORD!

King James Version

   2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
   3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

   5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
   6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
   7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
   8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
   9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
