Psalms 149

Sing to the  Lord a New Song

1 a  Praise the  Lord!
Sing to the  Lord b  a new song,
his praise in c  the assembly of the godly!
2Let Israel d  be glad in e  his Maker;
let the children of Zion rejoice in their f  King!
3Let them praise his name with g  dancing,
making melody to him with h  tambourine and i  lyre!
4For the  Lord j  takes pleasure in his people;
he k  adorns the humble with salvation.
5Let the godly exult in glory;
let them l  sing for joy on their m  beds.
6Let n  the high praises of God be in their throats
and o  two-edged swords in their hands,
7to execute vengeance on the nations
and punishments on the peoples,
8to bind their kings with p  chains
and their nobles with fetters of iron,
9to execute on them the judgment q  written!
r  This is honor for all his godly ones.
s  Praise the  Lord!
