Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from heaven! Praise God on the heights! 1 Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD from the heavens, praise him in the heights above.
2 Praise God, all of you who are his messengers! Praise God, all of you who comprise his heavenly forces! 2 Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
3 Sun and moon, praise God! All of you bright stars, praise God! 3 Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars.
4 You highest heaven, praise God! Do the same, you waters that are above the sky! 4 Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies.
5 Let all of these praise the LORD's name because God gave the command and they were created! 5 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for he commanded and they were created.
6 God set them in place always and forever. God made a law that will not be broken. 6 He set them in place for ever and ever; he gave a decree that will never pass away.
7 Praise the LORD from the earth, you sea monsters and all you ocean depths! 7 Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
8 Do the same, fire and hail, snow and smoke, stormy wind that does what God says! 8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding,
9 Do the same, you mountains, every single hill, fruit trees, and every single cedar! 9 you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars,
10 Do the same, you animals—wild or tame— you creatures that creep along and you birds that fly! 10 wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds,
11 Do the same, you kings of the earth and every single person, you princes and every single ruler on earth! 11 kings of the earth and all nations, you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 Do the same, you young men—young women too!— you who are old together with you who are young! 12 young men and maidens, old men and children.
13 Let all of these praise the LORD's name because only God's name is high over all. Only God's majesty is over earth and heaven. 13 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 God raised the strength of his people, the praise of all his faithful ones— that's the Israelites, the people who are close to him. Praise the LORD! 14 He has raised up for his people a horn, the praise of all his saints, of Israel, the people close to his heart. Praise the LORD.
