Psalm 149:3-5 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Let them praise his name with dancing.
Let them sing praises to him to the accompaniment of the tambourine and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he exalts the oppressed by delivering them.[a]
Let the godly rejoice because of their vindication.[b]
Let them shout for joy upon their beds.[c]


  1. Psalm 149:4 tn Heb “he honors the oppressed [with] deliverance.”
  2. Psalm 149:5 tn Heb “in glory.” Here “glory” probably refers to the “honor” that belongs to the Lord’s people as a result of their deliverance (see v. 4).
  3. Psalm 149:5 tn The significance of the reference to “beds” is unclear. Perhaps the point is that they should rejoice at all times, even when falling asleep or awaking.
