Psalm 148

Praise the Name of the Lord

1Praise 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 shining stars!

4Praise him, you highest heavens,

and you waters above the heavens!

5Let them praise the name of the Lord!

For he commanded and they were created.

6And he established them forever and ever;

he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.1

7Praise the Lord from the earth,

you great sea creatures and all deeps,

8fire and hail, snow and mist,

stormy wind fulfilling his word!

9Mountains and all hills,

fruit trees and all cedars!

10Beasts and all livestock,

creeping things and flying birds!

11Kings of the earth and all peoples,

princes and all rulers of the earth!

12Young men and maidens together,

old men and children!

13Let them praise the name of the Lord,

for his name alone is exalted;

his majesty is above earth and heaven.

14He has raised up a horn for his people,

praise for all his saints,

for the people of Israel who are near to him.

Praise the Lord!

Psalm 149

Sing to the Lord a New Song

1Praise the Lord!

Sing to the Lord a new song,

his praise in the assembly of the godly!

2Let Israel be glad in his Maker;

let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!

3Let them praise his name with dancing,

making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!

4For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;

he adorns the humble with salvation.

5Let the godly exult in glory;

let them sing for joy on their beds.

6Let the high praises of God be in their throats

and two-edged swords in their hands,

7to execute vengeance on the nations

and punishments on the peoples,

8to bind their kings with chains

and their nobles with fetters of iron,

9to execute on them the judgment written!

This is honor for all his godly ones.

Praise the Lord!

praise him according to his excellent greatness!

praise him with lute and harp!

4Praise him with tambourine and dance;

praise him with strings and pipe!

5Praise him with sounding cymbals;

praise him with loud clashing cymbals!

6Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord!
