PSALM 149[Y] Praise God with Song and Sword 149 1Hallelujah! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the faithful. 2Let Israel be glad in its maker, the people of Zion rejoice in their king. 3Let them praise his name in dance, make music with tambourine and lyre.[Z] 4For the LORD takes delight in his people, honors the poor with victory. 5Let the faithful rejoice in their glory, cry out for joy on their couches,[A] 6With the praise of God in their mouths, and a two–edged sword in their hands, 7To bring retribution on the nations, punishment on the peoples, 8To bind their kings in shackles, their nobles in chains of iron, 9To execute the judgments decreed for them— such is the glory[B] of all God’s faithful. Hallelujah!
