Praise the LORD.a1 Praise the LORD from the heavens,2 praise him in the heights above.
Praise him, all his angels,3 praise him, all his heavenly hosts.43
Praise him, sun5 and moon, praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens6 and you waters above the skies.75
Let them praise the name8 of the LORD, for he commanded9 and they were created.
He set them in place for ever and ever; he gave a decree10 that will never pass away.
Praise the LORD11 from the earth, you great sea creatures12 and all ocean depths,138
lightning and hail,14 snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding,159
you mountains and all hills,16 fruit trees and all cedars,
wild animals17 and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds,
kings18 of the earth and all nations, you princes and all rulers on earth,
young men and maidens, old men and children.
Let them praise the name of the LORD,19 for his name alone is exalted; his splendor20 is above the earth and the heavens.2114
He has raised up for his people a horn,b22 the praise23 of all his saints,24 of Israel, the people close to his heart.25 Praise the LORD.
