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.
Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King.
Let them praise His name with dancing;
With tambourine and lyre let them sing praises to Him.
For Yahweh takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.

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