Psalms 149:7-9


149:7 in order to take 1  revenge on the nations,

and punish foreigners.

149:8 They bind 2  their kings in chains,

and their nobles in iron shackles,

149:9 and execute the judgment to which their enemies 3  have been sentenced. 4 

All his loyal followers will be vindicated. 5 

Praise the Lord!

1 tn Heb “to do.”

2 tn Heb “to bind.”

3 tn Heb “they”; the referent (the enemies of the people of God) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “to do against them judgment [that] is written.”

5 tn Heb “it is honor for all his godly ones.” The judgment of the oppressive kings will bring vindication and honor to God’s people (see vv. 4-5).
