Israel Invoked to Praise the Lord
1 Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, and praise Him in the congregation of His godly ones (believers).
2 Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let Zion’s children rejoice in their King.
3 Let them praise His name with dancing; let them sing praises to Him with the tambourine and lyre.
4 For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation.
5 Let the godly ones exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their throats, and a two-edged sword in their hands,
7 To execute vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
8 To bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
9 To execute on them the judgment written. This is the honor for all His godly ones.
Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)Psalm 149:1-9 (AMP)
