Psalm 149

Praise the Lord.[a](A)

Sing to the Lord a new song,(B)
    his praise in the assembly(C) of his faithful people.

Let Israel rejoice(D) in their Maker;(E)
    let the people of Zion be glad in their King.(F)
Let them praise his name with dancing(G)
    and make music to him with timbrel and harp.(H)
For the Lord takes delight(I) in his people;
    he crowns the humble with victory.(J)
Let his faithful people rejoice(K) in this honor
    and sing for joy on their beds.(L)

May the praise of God be in their mouths(M)
    and a double-edged(N) sword in their hands,(O)
to inflict vengeance(P) on the nations
    and punishment(Q) on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters,(R)
    their nobles with shackles of iron,(S)
to carry out the sentence written against them—(T)
    this is the glory of all his faithful people.(U)

Praise the Lord.

Psalm 150

Praise the Lord.[b](V)

Praise God in his sanctuary;(W)
    praise him in his mighty heavens.(X)
Praise him for his acts of power;(Y)
    praise him for his surpassing greatness.(Z)
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,(AA)
    praise him with the harp and lyre,(AB)
praise him with timbrel and dancing,(AC)
    praise him with the strings(AD) and pipe,(AE)
praise him with the clash of cymbals,(AF)
    praise him with resounding cymbals.

Let everything(AG) that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.
