Psalm 149New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Praise God with Song and Sword
Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
2 Let Israel be glad in its maker,
the people of Zion rejoice in their king.
3 Let them praise his name in dance,
make music with tambourine and lyre.
4 For the Lord takes delight in his people,
honors the poor with victory.
5 Let the faithful rejoice in their glory,
cry out for joy on their couches,
6 With the praise of God in their mouths,
and a two-edged sword in their hands,
7 To bring retribution on the nations,
punishment on the peoples,
8 To bind their kings in shackles,
their nobles in chains of iron,
9 To execute the judgments decreed for them—
such is the glory of all God’s faithful.
