Psalm 148

 

Praise Yahweh!

Praise Yahweh from the heavens;

    praise Yahweh in the high places! (1)

Praise Yahweh, all you his messengers;

    Praise Yahweh, all you his heavenly army! (2)

Praise Yahweh, sun and moon;

    praise Yahweh all you light-giving stars! (3)

Praise Yahweh, you highest heavens;

    as well as the waters, which are above the heavens! (4)

Let them praise the name of Yahweh,

    for Yahweh gave the orders and all these things were created. (5)

Yahweh established them forever and ever;

    Yahweh set their boundaries that will never change. (6)

Praise Yahweh from the earth,

    you dragons and all deeps, (7)

fire and hail, snow and frost,

    stormy wind carrying out Yahweh's command! (8)

Mountains and all hills,

    fruit trees and all cedar trees! (9)

Wild animals and all domestic cattle,

    creeping things and winged birds! (10)

Kings of the earth and all peoples,

    princes and all politicians of the earth! (11)

Young men and young women too,

    old people together with youths! (12)

Let them praise the name of Yahweh,

    for Yahweh's name alone is exalted;

    Yahweh's glory is above earth and heaven. (13)

Yahweh has raised up a horn for his people,

    praise for his loyal people,

    for the Israelites, a people who are close to him.

Praise Yahweh! (14)
