The prophet exhorteth to praise God for his love to the Church,
Psalms 149:1 Praise ye Jah! Sing ye to Jehovah a new song, His praise in an assembly of saints. Psalms 149:2 Israel doth rejoice in his Maker, Sons of Zion do joy in their king. Psalms 149:3 They praise His name in a dance, With timbrel and harp sing praise to Him. Psalms 149:4 For Jehovah is pleased with His people, He beautifieth the humble with salvation.
and for that power which he hath given to the Church.
Psalms 149:5 Exult do saints in honour, They sing aloud on their beds. Psalms 149:6 The exaltation of God [is] in their throat, And a two-edged sword in their hand. Psalms 149:7 To do vengeance among nations, Punishments among the peoples. Psalms 149:8 To bind their kings with chains, And their honoured ones with fetters of iron, Psalms 149:9 To do among them the judgment written, An honour it [is] for all his saints. Praise ye Jah!
