Psalm 149English Standard Version (ESV)

Sing to the Lord a New Song

149 Praise the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song,
    his praise in the assembly of the godly!
Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
    let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!
Let them praise his name with dancing,
    making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!
For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;
    he adorns the humble with salvation.
Let the godly exult in glory;
    let them sing for joy on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats
    and two-edged swords in their hands,
to execute vengeance on the nations
    and punishments on the peoples,
to bind their kings with chains
    and their nobles with fetters of iron,
to execute on them the judgment written!
    This is honor for all his godly ones.
Praise the Lord!

Psalm 149The Voice (VOICE)

Psalm 149

Praise the Eternal!
Write new songs; sing them to Him with all your might!
    Gather with His faithful followers in joyful praise;
Let all of Israel celebrate their Maker, their God, their friend;
    let the children of Zion find great joy in their true King.
So let the music begin; praise His name—dance and sing
    to the rhythm of the tambourine, and to the tune of the harp.
For the Eternal is listening, and nothing pleases Him more than His people;
    He raises up the poor and endows them with His salvation.
Let His faithful followers erupt in praise,
    singing triumphantly wherever they are, even as they lie down for sleep in the evening.
With the name of God and praise in their mouths,
    with a two-edged sword in their hands,
Let them take revenge on all nations who deny God.
    Let them punish the peoples.
Kings and nobles will be locked up,
    and their freedom will be bound in iron shackles.
This judgment against them, decreed by a holy God, will be carried out.
    It’s an honor for all His faithful followers to serve Him.
Praise the Eternal!
