Let them praise the name1 of the LORD, for he commanded2 and they were created.
He set them in place for ever and ever; he gave a decree3 that will never pass away.
Praise the LORD4 from the earth, you great sea creatures5 and all ocean depths,68
lightning and hail,7 snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding,89
you mountains and all hills,9 fruit trees and all cedars,
wild animals10 and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds,
kings11 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,12 for his name alone is exalted; his splendor13 is above the earth and the heavens.1414
He has raised up for his people a horn,a15 the praise16 of all his saints,17 of Israel, the people close to his heart.18 Praise the LORD.
