Psalms 149:1-9

149  Praise Jah!* Sing to Jehovah a new song;+Praise him in the congregation of the loyal ones.+   Let Israel rejoice in its Grand Maker;+Let the sons of Zion be joyful in their King.   Let them praise his name with dancing+And sing praises* to him, accompanied by the tambourine and the harp.+   For Jehovah takes pleasure in his people.+ He adorns the meek with salvation.+   Let the loyal ones exult in glory;Let them shout for joy upon their beds.+   Let the songs praising God be in their throat,And a two-edged sword be in their hand,   To execute vengeance on the nationsAnd punishment on the peoples,   To bind their kings with shacklesAnd their nobles with iron fetters,   To execute the judgment written against them.+ This honor belongs to all his loyal ones. Praise Jah!*
