Psalm 149

1  Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.

2  Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

3  Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

4  For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

5  Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

6  Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;

7  To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

8  To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

9  To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
