Israel Invoked to Praise the Lord.
149 [a]Praise [b]the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a (A)new song,
And His praise (B)in the congregation of the godly ones.
2 Let Israel be glad in (C)his Maker;
Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their (D)King.
3 Let them praise His name with (E)dancing;
Let them sing praises to Him with (F)timbrel and lyre.
4 For the Lord (G)takes pleasure in His people;
He will (H)beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.
5 Let the (I)godly ones exult in glory;
Let them (J)sing for joy on their beds.
6 Let the (K)high praises of God be in their [c]mouth,
And a (L)two-edged (M)sword in their hand,
7 To (N)execute vengeance on the nations
And punishment on the peoples,
8 To bind their kings (O)with chains
And their (P)nobles with fetters of iron,
9 To (Q)execute on them the judgment written;
This is an (R)honor for all His godly ones.
[d]Praise [e]the Lord!
