Psalm 149 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

149 Praise ye Jah! Sing ye to Jehovah a new song, His praise in an assembly of saints.

Israel doth rejoice in his Maker, Sons of Zion do joy in their king.

They praise His name in a dance, With timbrel and harp sing praise to Him.

For Jehovah is pleased with His people, He beautifieth the humble with salvation.

Exult do saints in honour, They sing aloud on their beds.

The exaltation of God [is] in their throat, And a two-edged sword in their hand.

To do vengeance among nations, Punishments among the peoples.

To bind their kings with chains, And their honoured ones with fetters of iron,

To do among them the judgment written, An honour it [is] for all his saints. Praise ye Jah!

Psalm 149 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 149

Praise the Lord.[a]

Sing to the Lord a new song,
    his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
    let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing
    and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
    he crowns the humble with victory.
Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
    and sing for joy on their beds.

May the praise of God be in their mouths
    and a double-edged sword in their hands,
to inflict vengeance on the nations
    and punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters,
    their nobles with shackles of iron,
to carry out the sentence written against them—
    this is the glory of all his faithful people.

Praise the Lord.
