149:2 Let Israel rejoice in their Creator!
Let the people of Zion delight in their king!
149:5 Let the godly rejoice because of their vindication!
Let them shout for joy upon their beds!
149:6 May they praise God
while they hold a two-edged sword in their hand,
149:7 in order to take revenge on the nations,
and punish foreigners.
149:8 They bind their kings in chains,
and their nobles in iron shackles,
149:9 and execute the judgment to which their enemies have been sentenced.
All his loyal followers will be vindicated.
Praise the Lord!
