Psalms Chapter 149
The church is particularly bound to praise God.
149:1. Sing ye to the Lord a new canticle: let his praise be in the church of the saints.
149:2. Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: and let the children of Sion be joyful in their king.
149:3. Let them praise his name in choir: let them sing to him with the timbrel and the psaltery.
149:4. For the Lord is well pleased with his people: and he will exalt the meek unto salvation.
149:5. The saints shall rejoice in glory: they shall be joyful in their beds.
149:6. The high praises of God shall be in their mouth: and two-edged swords in their hands:
149:7. To execute vengeance upon the nations, chastisements among the people:
149:8. To bind their kings with fetters, and their nobles with manacles of iron.
149:9. To execute upon them the judgment that is written: this glory is to all his saints. Alleluia.
