Psalm 149 opens with a rousing exhortation to praise God with instruments, singing, and dancing that starts in the assemblies, and follows the gathered saints back home to their beds. In verse 6, the psalm shifts from presenting the saints as recipients of salvation to ministers of justice. God’s people are not just saved from something but to something. Through the non-carnal weapons of worship and faithful lives, the people of God bring judgment against the wicked, and they are seen as worthy of honor because of this work. As you come to worship today, glorify God with a song and a sword.
