Praise to the Lord from Creation
1Praise148:1 Heb. Hallelujah 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 stars of light!
4Praise Him, you heavens of heavens,
And you waters above the heavens!
5Let them praise the name of the Lord,
For He commanded and they were created.
6He also established them forever and ever;
He made a decree which shall not pass away.
7Praise the Lord from the earth,
You great sea creatures and all the depths;
8Fire and hail, snow and clouds;
Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;
9Mountains and all hills;
Fruitful trees and all cedars;
10Beasts and all cattle;
Creeping things and flying fowl;
11Kings of the earth and all peoples;
Princes and all judges of the earth;
12Both young men and maidens;
Old men and children.
13Let them praise the name of the Lord,
For His name alone is exalted;
His glory is above the earth and heaven.
14And He has exalted the 148:14 Strength or dominionhorn of His people,
The praise of all His saints—
Of the children of Israel,
A people near to Him.
