Hallelujah! Give praise, servants of the Lord; praise the name of the Lord.
Let the name of the Lord be praised both now and forever.
From the rising of the sun to its setting, let the name of the Lord be praised.
The Lord is exalted above all the nations, His glory above the heavens.
Who is like the Lord our God- the One enthroned on high,
who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the garbage pile
in order to seat them with nobles- with the nobles of His people.a9
He gives the childless woman a household,b [making her] the joyful mother of children. Hallelujah!
