Psalm 148
Psalm 148
Praise Him, All Creation
1Praise the Lord.[]
Praise From the Heavens
Praise the Lord from the heavens.
Praise him in the heights.
2Praise him, all his angels.
Praise him, all his armies.
3Praise him, sun and moon.
Praise him, all you bright stars.
4Praise him, you highest heavens
and you waters which are above the heavens.
5Let them praise the name of the Lord,
because he commanded, and they were created.
6He caused them to stand forever and ever.
He gave a decree, and it will not pass away.
Praise From the Earth
7Praise the Lord from the earth,
great sea creatures and all the depths,
8fire and hail, snow and fog,
storm winds that obey his word,
9mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars,
10wild animals and all cattle,
crawling creatures and flying birds,
11kings of the earth and all peoples,
officials and all judges on earth,
12young men and also young women,
old people with young people.
13Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted.
His splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14He has raised up a horn[] for his people—
the praise of all his favored ones—
for the children of Israel, the people close to him.
Praise the Lord!
