Psalms 149


The LORD Takes Pleasure in His People


1Sing to the  lord [2song 1a new], of his praise in the assembly of the sacred ones! 2Let Israel be glad upon the one making him! and the sons of Zion, let them exult over their king! 3Let them praise his name among the company of dancers! with tambourine and psaltery let them strum to him! 4For the  lord takes pleasure in his people, and he shall exalt the gentle with deliverance. 5[2shall boast 1sacred ones] in glory, and shall exult upon their beds. 6The act of exaltation of God is in their throat, and [2broadswords 1double-edged] are in their hands; 7 to execute punishment among the nations, and rebukes among the peoples; 8 to tie their kings in shackles, and their nobles in manacles of iron; 9 to execute among them [2judgment 1written]. This glory is to all his sacred ones.
