149 Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, And praise Him in the congregation of His godly ones (believers). 2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; Let Zion’s children rejoice in their King. 3 Let them praise His name with dancing; Let them sing praises to Him with the tambourine and lyre. 4 For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation.
5 Let the godly ones exult in glory; Let them sing for joy on their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their throats, And a two-edged sword in their hands, 7 To execute vengeance on the nations And punishment on the peoples, 8 To bind their kings with chains And their nobles with fetters of iron, 9 To execute on them the judgment written. This is the honor for all His godly ones. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
