Psalms 148

Praise the Name of the  Lord

1 a  Praise the  Lord!
Praise the  Lord b  from the heavens;
praise him c  in the heights!
2Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his d  hosts!
3 Praise him, sun and moon,
praise him, all you shining stars!
4Praise him, you e  highest heavens,
and you f  waters above the heavens!
5 g  Let them praise the name of the  Lord!
For h  he commanded and they were created.
6And he i  established them forever and ever;
he gave j  a decree, and it shall not k  pass away.
Or  it shall not be transgressed

7 Praise the  Lord m  from the earth,
you n  great sea creatures and all deeps,
8 o  fire and hail p  snow and mist,
q  stormy wind r  fulfilling his word!
9 s  Mountains and all hills,
t  fruit trees and all u  cedars!
10 v  Beasts and all livestock,
creeping things and w  flying birds!
11 Kings of the earth and x  all peoples,
princes and all rulers of the earth!
12Young men and maidens together,
old men and children!
13 y  Let them praise the name of the  Lord,
for z  his name alone is exalted;
aa  his majesty is above earth and heaven.
14He has ab  raised up a horn for his people,
ac  praise for all his saints,
for the people of Israel who are ad  near to him.
ae  Praise the  Lord!
