Psalms 149



Verse 4

For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

The Lord — He rejoiceth over them to do them good.

Beautify — Heb. adorn, make them amiable and honourable in the eyes of the world, who now hate and despise them.

The meek — All true Israelites are such.

Verse 5

Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

In glory — For the honour which God putteth upon them.

Beds — By night as well as by day.

Verse 7

To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

Vengeance — For all their cruelties and injuries towards God's people. This was literally accomplished by David upon the Philistines, Ammonites, Syrians and other neighbouring nations.

Verse 9

To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

Written — Appointed and declared in the holy scripture.
