Day 30 — Psalm 149

Song of triumph


Sing Yahweh a new song,
let the congregation of the faithful sing His praise!
Let Israel rejoice in his Maker,
and Zion's children exult in their King;
let them dance in praise of His name,
playing to Him on strings and drums!

For Yahweh has been kind to His people,
conferring victory on us who are weak;
the faithful exult in triumph,
prostrate before God they acclaim Him
with panegyrics on their lips,
and a two-edged sword in their hands

to exact vengeance on the pagans,
to inflict punishment on the heathen,
to shackle their kings with chains
and their nobles with fetters,
to execute the preordained sentence.
Thus gloriously are the faithful rewarded!

Next… Psalm 150
