[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: In Psalm 149, the Psalmist encourages Israel to sing a new song to the LORD for his deliverance and his judgment upon their enemies. It is a Psalm which promises the ultimate triumph of God's people.
(a). God Loves His People. The Psalmist exhorts Israel to sing a new song to the LORD and praise him joyfully in the congregation of the saints because he made them and he is their king. They should praise him in the dance and sing praises with the timbrel and harp because the LORD takes pleasure in his people and will beautify the meek with salvation. They should be joyful and sing upon their beds (1-5).
(b). God Empowers His People. The high praises of God should be in their mouth and a two edged sword in their hand to execute vengeance and punishments upon the heathen, to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron, and to execute the judgment written. All of his saints have this honor (6-9).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

Deliverance from Sinners and from Sin
Nearly all the Psalms (except Psalm 90) were written during the 612 year period
from the time of David around 1016 B. C. to the close of the Canon in about 404 B. C.
Psalm 90, according to its superscription, was written by Moses; this may have been around 1406 B. C.

he will beautify the meek with salvation.
5 Let the saints be joyful in glory:
let them sing aloud upon their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
and a twoedged sword in their hand;
7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen,
and punishments upon the people;
8 To bind their kings with chains,
and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute upon them the judgment written:
this honour have all his saints.
Praise ye the LORD.
* NOTE: On Opening and Closing Comments in the Psalms.
[Some commentators take the Psalm in Habakkuk 3 to be a standard model for the Psalms.
Habakkuk's Psalm begins with the name of the composer (Habakkuk) and a musical notation ("upon Shigionoth").
It closes with a dedication or a "send to" notice ("To the chief singer on my stringed instruments").
I have arranged similar material, where it is found in the Psalter, in accord with the model in Habakkuk.]
