Psalm 113

God’s Majesty and Care for the Needy

1 Praise Yah! Praise, O servants of Yahweh, praise the name of Yahweh.
2 Let the name of Yahweh be blessed, from now until forever.
3 From [the] rising of [the] sun to its setting, [let] the name of Yahweh be blessed.
4 Yahweh [is] high above all nations; his glory [is] above the heavens.
5 Who [is] like Yahweh our God, who [is] enthroned on high,
6 who {condescends to look at} [what is] in the heavens and in the earth?
7 [He] raises [the] helpless from [the] dust; he lifts [the] needy from [the] ash heap,
8 to seat [them] with princes, with the princes of his people.
9 [He] causes the barren woman of the house to dwell [as] the happy mother of children. Praise Yah!
