Psalm 148

Praise the Name of the Lord

1 Praise 1 the LORD!
Praise the LORD from the heavens;
Praise Him in the heights!
2 Praise Him, all His angels;
Praise Him, all His hosts!

3 Praise Him, sun and moon;
Praise Him, all you stars of light!
4 Praise Him, a you heavens of heavens,
And b you waters above the heavens!

5 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
For c He commanded and they were created.
6 d He also established them forever and ever;
He made a decree which shall not pass away.

7 Praise the LORD from the earth,
e You great sea creatures and all the depths;
8 Fire and hail, snow and clouds;
Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;

9 f Mountains and all hills;
Fruitful trees and all cedars;
10 Beasts and all cattle;
Creeping things and flying fowl;

11 Kings of the earth and all peoples;
Princes and all judges of the earth;
12 Both young men and maidens;
Old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
For His g name alone is exalted;
His glory is above the earth and heaven.
14 And He h has exalted the 2 horn of His people,
The praise of i all His saints -
Of the children of Israel,
j A people near to Him.
3 Praise the LORD!
