Psalms 113

1Praise the  Lord.
Hebrew Hallelu Yah; also in verse 9

Praise the  Lord, you his servants;
praise the name of the  Lord.
2Let the name of the  Lord be praised,
both now and for evermore.
3From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
the name of the  Lord is to be praised.
4The  Lord is exalted over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.
5Who is like the  Lord our God,
the One who sits enthroned on high,
6who stoops down to look
on the heavens and the earth?
7He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
8he seats them with princes,
with the princes of his people.
9He settles the childless woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.
Praise the  Lord.
