Psalm 149 New King James Version (NKJV)

Praise to God for His Salvation and Judgment

149 Praise[a] the Lord!

Sing to the Lord a new song,
And His praise in the assembly of saints.

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Let them praise His name with the dance;
Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the [b]humble with salvation.

Let the saints be joyful in glory;
Let them sing aloud on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
To execute vengeance on the nations,
And punishments on the peoples;
To bind their kings with chains,
And their nobles with fetters of iron;
To execute on them the written judgment—
This honor have all His saints.

[c]Praise the Lord!

149 הַ֥לְלוּ יָ֨הּ׀ שִׁ֣ירוּ לַֽ֭יהוָה שִׁ֣יר חָדָ֑שׁ תְּ֝הִלָּת֗וֹ בִּקְהַ֥ל חֲסִידִֽים׃

יִשְׂמַ֣ח יִשְׂרָאֵ֣ל בְּעֹשָׂ֑יו בְּנֵֽי־צִ֝יּ֗וֹן יָגִ֥ילוּ בְמַלְכָּֽם׃

כִּֽי־רוֹצֶ֣ה יְהוָ֣ה בְּעַמּ֑וֹ יְפָאֵ֥ר עֲ֝נָוִ֗ים בִּישׁוּעָֽה׃

יַעְלְז֣וּ חֲסִידִ֣ים בְּכָב֑וֹד יְ֝רַנְּנ֗וּ עַל־מִשְׁכְּבוֹתָֽם׃

Psalm 149 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

149 Praise ye Jah! Sing ye to Jehovah a new song, His praise in an assembly of saints.

Israel doth rejoice in his Maker, Sons of Zion do joy in their king.

They praise His name in a dance, With timbrel and harp sing praise to Him.

For Jehovah is pleased with His people, He beautifieth the humble with salvation.

Exult do saints in honour, They sing aloud on their beds.

The exaltation of God [is] in their throat, And a two-edged sword in their hand.

To do vengeance among nations, Punishments among the peoples.

To bind their kings with chains, And their honoured ones with fetters of iron,

To do among them the judgment written, An honour it [is] for all his saints. Praise ye Jah!

Psalm 149 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Israel Invoked to Praise the Lord.

149 [a]Praise [b]the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song,
And His praise in the congregation of the godly ones.
Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King.
Let them praise His name with dancing;
Let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre.
For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.

Let the godly ones exult in glory;
Let them sing for joy on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their [c]mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
To execute vengeance on the nations
And punishment on the peoples,
To bind their kings with chains
And their nobles with fetters of iron,
To execute on them the judgment written;
This is an honor for all His godly ones.
[d]Praise [e]the Lord!
