Psalm 149

Yahweh Takes Pleasure in His People

Praise Yah!
Sing to Yahweh a new song,
His praise in the assembly of the holy ones.
2
Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King.
3
Let them praise His name with dancing;
With tambourine and lyre let them sing praises to Him.
4
For Yahweh takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.

5
Let the holy ones exult in glory;
Let them sing for joy on their beds.
6
Let the exaltations of God be in their throats,
And a two‑edged sword in their hand,
7
To execute vengeance on the nations
And punishments on the peoples,
8
To bind their kings with chains
And their honored men with fetters of iron,
9
To execute on them the judgment written;
This is the majesty of all His holy ones.
Praise Yah!
