1Praise the LORD!
Praise, O servants of the LORD,
Praise the name of the LORD.
2Blessed be the name of the LORD
From this time forth and forever.
3From the rising of the sun to its setting
The name of the LORD is to be praised.
4The LORD is high above all nations;
His glory is above the heavens.
5Who is like the LORD our God,
Who is enthroned on high,
6Who humbles Himself to behold
[The things that are] in heaven and in the earth?
7He raises the poor from the dust
And lifts the needy from the ash heap,
8To make [them] sit with princes,
With the princes of His people.
9He makes the barren woman abide in the house
[As] a joyful mother of children.
Praise the LORD!
