Let the name of the LORD be praised,1 both now and forevermore.23
From the rising of the sun3 to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised.
The LORD is exalted4 over all the nations, his glory above the heavens.55
Who is like the LORD our God,6 the One who sits enthroned7 on high,86
who stoops down to look9 on the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor10 from the dust and lifts the needy11 from the ash heap;
he seats them12 with princes, with the princes of their people.
He settles the barren13 woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the LORD.
