The prophet exhorteth to praise God for his love to the Church,
Psalms 149:1 Praise ye Jehovah. Sing unto Jehovah a new song, And his praise in the assembly of the saints. Psalms 149:2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. Psalms 149:3 Let them praise his name in the dance: Let them sing praises unto him with timbrel and harp. Psalms 149:4 For Jehovah taketh pleasure in his people: He will beautify the meek with salvation.
and for that power which he hath given to the Church.
Psalms 149:5 Let the saints exult in glory: Let them sing for joy upon their beds. Psalms 149:6 [Let] the high praises of God [be] in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand; Psalms 149:7 To execute vengeance upon the nations, And punishments upon the peoples; Psalms 149:8 To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; Psalms 149:9 To execute upon them the judgment written: This honor have all his saints. Praise ye Jehovah.
