Psalm 148

1 Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from heaven, you that live in the heights above.
2 Praise him, all his angels, all his heavenly armies.
3 Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, shining stars.
4 Praise him, highest heavens, and the waters above the sky.
5 Let them all praise the name of the Lord! He commanded, and they were created;
6 by his command they were fixed in their places forever, and they cannot disobey.
7 Praise the Lord from the earth, sea monsters and all ocean depths;
8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds, strong winds that obey his command.
9 Praise him, hills and mountains, fruit trees and forests;
10 all animals, tame and wild, reptiles and birds.
11 Praise him, kings and all peoples, princes and all other rulers;
12 young women and young men, old people and children too.
13 Let them all praise the name of the Lord! His name is greater than all others; his glory is above earth and heaven.
14 He made his nation strong, so that all his people praise him - the people of Israel, so dear to him. Praise the Lord!
