A Hymn of Praise 149 1Praise the LORD! Sing a new song to the LORD; praise him in the assembly of his faithful people! 2Be glad, Israel, because of your Creator; rejoice, people of Zion, because of your king! 3Praise his name with dancing; play drums and harps in praise of him. 4The LORD takes pleasure in his people; he honors the humble with victory. 5Let God's people rejoice in their triumph and sing joyfully all night long. 6 Let them shout aloud as they praise God, with their sharp swords in their hands 7to defeat the nations and to punish the peoples; 8to bind their kings in chains, their leaders in chains of iron; 9to punish the nations as God has commanded. This is the victory of God's people. Praise the LORD!
