Psalm 149Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
Praise for God’s Triumph
Sing to the Lord a new song,
His praise in the assembly of the godly.
2 Let Israel celebrate its Maker;
let the children of Zion rejoice in their King.
3 Let them praise His name with dancing
and make music to Him with tambourine and lyre.
4 For Yahweh takes pleasure in His people;
He adorns the humble with salvation.
5 Let the godly celebrate in triumphal glory;
let them shout for joy on their beds.
6 Let the exaltation of God be in their mouths
and a double-edged sword in their hands,
7 inflicting vengeance on the nations
and punishment on the peoples,
8 binding their kings with chains
and their dignitaries with iron shackles,
9 carrying out the judgment decreed against them.
This honor is for all His godly people.
