He set them in place for ever and ever; he gave a decree1 that will never pass away.
Praise the LORD2 from the earth, you great sea creatures3 and all ocean depths,48
lightning and hail,5 snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding,69
you mountains and all hills,7 fruit trees and all cedars,
wild animals8 and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds,
kings9 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,10 for his name alone is exalted; his splendor11 is above the earth and the heavens.1214
He has raised up for his people a horn,a13 the praise14 of all his saints,15 of Israel, the people close to his heart.16 Praise the LORD.
