Psalm 149 World English Bible (WEB)

149 Praise Yahweh!
    Sing to Yahweh a new song,
    his praise in the assembly of the saints.
Let Israel rejoice in him who made them.
    Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Let them praise his name in the dance!
    Let them sing praises to him with tambourine and harp!
For Yahweh takes pleasure in his people.
    He crowns the humble with salvation.
Let the saints rejoice in honor.
    Let them sing for joy on their beds.
May the high praises of God be in their mouths,
    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 nobles with fetters of iron;
to execute on them the written judgment.
    All his saints have this honor.
Praise Yah!

Psalm 149 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 149

Praise the Lord.[a]

Sing to the Lord a new song,
    his praise in the assembly of his faithful people.

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
    let the people of Zion be glad in their King.
Let them praise his name with dancing
    and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people;
    he crowns the humble with victory.
Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor
    and sing for joy on their beds.

May the praise of God be in their mouths
    and a double-edged sword in their hands,
to inflict vengeance on the nations
    and punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters,
    their nobles with shackles of iron,
to carry out the sentence written against them—
    this is the glory of all his faithful people.

Praise the Lord.
