Praise to God for His Salvation and Judgment

149 Praise[a] the Lord!

(A)Sing to the Lord a new song,
And His praise in the assembly of saints.

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
Let the children of Zion be joyful in their (B)King.
(C)Let them praise His name with the dance;
Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.
For (D)the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
(E)He will beautify the [b]humble with salvation.

Let the saints be joyful in glory;
Let them (F)sing aloud on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And (G)a two-edged sword in their hand,
To execute vengeance on the nations,
And punishments on the peoples;
To bind their kings with chains,
And their nobles with fetters of iron;
(H)To execute on them the written judgment—
(I)This honor have all His saints.

[c]Praise the Lord!
