Psalms 113

Psalm 1131

113:1 Praise the Lord!

Praise, you servants of the Lord,

praise the name of the Lord!

113:2 May the Lord’s name be praised

now and forevermore!

113:3 From east to west2

the Lord’s name is deserving of praise.

113:4 The Lord is exalted over all the nations;

his splendor reaches beyond the sky.3

113:5 Who can compare to the Lord our God,

who sits on a high throne?4

113:6 He bends down to look5

at the sky and the earth.

113:7 He raises the poor from the dirt,

and lifts up the needy from the garbage pile,6

113:8 that he might seat him with princes,

with the princes of his people.

113:9 He makes the barren woman of the family7

a happy mother of children.8

Praise the Lord!
