English Standard Version

1 Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of the godly! (Ps 33:3; Ps 89:5; Ps 89:7; Ps 148:14) 2 Let Israel be glad in his Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their King! (1Sa 12:12; Job 35:10; Ps 85:6; Ps 95:6; Zec 9:9) 3 Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre! (Ex 15:20; Ps 30:11; Ps 150:3; Ps 150:4) 4 For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation. (Ps 35:27; Ps 147:11; Isa 61:3) 5 Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds. (Job 35:10; Ps 4:4; Ps 63:6; Ho 7:14) 6 Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands, (Ps 66:17; Pr 5:4; Heb 4:12; Re 1:16; Re 2:12) 7 to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples, 8 to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron, (Job 36:8) 9 to execute on them the judgment written! This is honor for all his godly ones. Praise the Lord! (Job 13:26; Ps 148:14; Isa 65:6)

1 Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints. 2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. 4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. 5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; 7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; 8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

Psalm 149

New Int. Readers Version

1 Praise the Lord. Sing a new song to the Lord. Sing praise to him in the community of his faithful people. 2 Let Israel be filled with joy because God is their Maker. Let the people of Zion be glad because he is their King. 3 Let them praise his name with dancing. Let them make music to him with harps and tambourines. 4 The Lord takes delight in his people. He saves those who aren't proud. He makes them feel like kings. 5 Let his faithful people be filled with joy because of that honor. Let them sing with joy even when they are lying in bed. 6 May they praise God with their mouths. May they hold in their hands a sword that has two edges. 7 Let them pay the nations back. Let them punish the people of the earth. 8 Let them put the kings of those nations in chains. Let them put their nobles in iron chains. 9 Let them carry out God's sentence against the nations. That will bring glory to all of his faithful people. Praise the Lord.
