Psalm 149 Mar. 22  1Praise Yahweh! Sing to Yahweh a new song, His praise in the assembly of the saints. 2Let Israel rejoice in Him who made him, let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3Let them praise His name in the dance! Let them sing praises to Him with tambourine and harp! 4For Yahweh takes pleasure in His people, He crowns the humble with salvation. 5Let the saints rejoice in glory, let them sing for joy on their beds. 6May the high praises of God be in their mouths, and a two-edged sword in their hand; 7to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; 8to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9to execute on them the judgment written. All His saints have this honour. Praise Yah!    


149:2 Be joyful in their King- This Psalm would’ve been written and used when Israel had a human king. But the Psalmist, perhaps king David, wanted them to understand that whatever system of human leadership there is amongst God’s people, He is their ultimate King and His Kingship was to be personally felt by every one of His people, so that they might eternally be His Kingdom, the entity of persons over which He extends rulership and sovereign authority.
