Psalm 149

1 Alleluia!

Sing a new song to the LORD,

 his praise in the assembly of the faithful.

 2 Let Israel rejoice in its Maker;

 let Sion’s children exult in their king.

 3 Let them praise his name with dancing,

 and make music with timbrel and harp.

4 For the LORD takes delight in his people;

 he crowns the poor with salvation.

 5 Let the faithful exult in glory,

 and rejoice as they take their rest.

 6 Let the praise of God be in their mouths

 and a two-edged sword in their hand,

7 To deal out vengeance to the nations

 and punishment upon the peoples;

 8 to bind their kings in chains

 and their nobles in fetters of iron;

 9 to carry out the judgment decreed.

 This is an honor for all his faithful.
