Book of Psalms

The Douay-Rheims Bible


Chapter 149

1    Sing ye to the Lord a new canticle: let his praise be in the church of the saints.
2    Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: and let the children of Sion be joyful in their king.
3    Let them praise his name in choir: let them sing to him with the timbrel and the psaltery.
4    For the Lord is well pleased with his people: and he will exalt the meek unto salvation.
5    The saints shall rejoice in glory: they shall be joyful in their beds.
6    The high praise of God shall be in their mouth: and two-edged swords in their hands:
7    To execute vengeance upon the nations, chastisements among the people:
8    To bind their kings with fetters, and their nobles with manacles of iron.
9    To execute upon them the judgment that is written: this glory is to all his saints. Alleluia.
