1Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD 2from the heavens; praise him 3in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his 4hosts!
Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars!
Praise him, you 5highest heavens, and you 6waters above the heavens!
7Let them praise the name of the LORD! For 8he commanded and they were created.
And he 9established them forever and ever; he gave 10a decree, and it shall not 11pass away.
Praise the LORD 12from the earth, you 13great sea creatures and all deeps,
14fire and hail, 15snow and mist, 16stormy wind 17fulfilling his word!
18Mountains and all hills, 19fruit trees and all 20cedars!
21Beasts and all livestock, creeping things and 22flying birds!
Kings of the earth and 23all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth!
Young men and maidens together, old men and children!
24Let them praise the name of the LORD, for 25his name alone is exalted; 26his majesty is above earth and heaven.
He has 27raised up a horn for his people, 28praise for all his saints, for the people of Israel who are 29near to him. 30Praise the LORD!
