Psalms 149

1 Praise Yahweh!  Sing to Yahweh a new song,  His praise in the assembly of the saints.

2 Let Israel rejoice in him who made them.  Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

3 Let them praise his name in the dance!  Let them sing praises to him with tambourine and harp!

4 For Yahweh takes pleasure in his people.  He crowns the humble with salvation.

5 Let the saints rejoice in honor.  Let them sing for joy on their beds.

6 May the high praises of God be in their mouths,  And a two-edged sword in their hand;

7 To execute vengeance on the nations,  And punishments on the peoples;

8 To bind their kings with chains,  And their nobles with fetters of iron;

9 To execute on them the written judgment.  All his saints have this honor.  Praise Yah!
