Psalm 148

Praise the Name of the Lord

1Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord from the | heavens;*

    praise him | in the heights!

2Praise him, all his | angels;*

    praise him, | all his hosts!

3Praise him, | sun and moon,*

    praise him, all you | shining stars!

4Praise him, you highest | heavens,*

    and you waters above the | heavens!

5Let them praise the name | of the Lord!*

    For he commanded and they were cre- | ated.

6And he established them forever and | ever;*

    he gave a decree, and it shall not | pass away.

7Praise the Lord | from the earth,*

    you great sea creatures and | all deeps,

8fire and hail, | snow and mist,*

    stormy wind fulfill- | ing his word!

9Mountains and | all hills,*

    fruit trees and all | cedars!

10Beasts and all | livestock,*

    creeping things and | flying birds!

11Kings of the earth and all | peoples,*

    princes and all rulers | of the earth!

12Young men and maidens to- | gether,

    old men and | children!

13Let them praise the name of the Lord,

    for his name alone is ex- | alted;*

    his majesty is above earth and | heaven.

14He has raised up a horn for his people,

    praise for | all his saints,*

    for the people of Israel who are near to him.

| Praise the Lord!
