149:1 Praise the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song!
Praise him in the assembly of the godly! 2
149:2 Let Israel rejoice in their Creator!
149:3 Let them praise his name with dancing!
Let them sing praises to him to the accompaniment of the tambourine and harp!
149:4 For the Lord takes delight in his people;
he exalts the oppressed by delivering them. 5
Let them shout for joy upon their beds! 7
149:6 May they praise God
while they hold a two-edged sword in their hand, 8
and punish foreigners.
and their nobles in iron shackles,
All his loyal followers will be vindicated. 13
Praise the Lord!
