Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) - Psalm 149

Psalm 149

1 Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, praise Him in the assembly of His saints!

2 Let Israel rejoice in Him, their Maker; let Zion’s children triumph and be joyful in their King!(A)

3 Let them praise His name in chorus and choir and with the [single or group] dance; let them sing praises to Him with the tambourine and lyre!

4 For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation and adorn the wretched with victory.

5 Let the saints be joyful in the glory and beauty [which God confers upon them]; let them sing for joy upon their beds.

6 Let the high praises of God be in their throats and a two-edged sword in their hands,(B)

7 To wreak vengeance upon the nations and chastisement upon the peoples,

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

9 To execute upon them the judgment written. He [the Lord] is the honor of all His saints. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
