Chapter 149



  Let the Lord be praised. Make a new song to the Lord, let his praise be in the meeting of his saints.  





  Let Israel have joy in his maker; let the children of Zion be glad in their King.  





  Let them give praise to his name in the dance: let them make melody to him with instruments of brass and corded instruments of music.  





  For the Lord has pleasure in his people: he gives the poor in spirit a crown of salvation.  





  Let the saints have joy and glory: let them give cries of joy on their beds.  





  Let the high praises of God be in their mouths, and a two-edged sword in their hands;  





  To give the nations the reward of their sins, and the peoples their punishment;  





  To put their kings in chains, and their rulers in bands of iron;  





  To give them the punishment which is in the holy writings: this honour is given to all his saints. Praise be to the Lord.
