Psalm 149New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
1 Praise the Lord.
Sing a new song to the Lord. Sing praise to him in the assembly of his faithful people.
2 Let Israel be filled with joy because God is their Maker. Let the people of Zion be glad because he is their King. 3 Let them praise his name with dancing. Let them make music to him with harps and tambourines. 4 The Lord takes delight in his people. He awards with victory those who are humble. 5 Let his faithful people be filled with joy because of that honor. Let them sing for joy even when they are lying in bed.
6 May they praise God with their mouths. May they hold in their hands a sword that has two edges. 7 Let them pay the nations back. Let them punish the people of the earth. 8 Let them put the kings of those nations in chains. Let them put their nobles in iron chains. 9 Let them carry out God’s sentence against those nations. This will bring glory to all his faithful people.
