Psalm 148

Let All Creation Praise Yahweh

1 Praise Yah. Praise Yahweh from the heavens; praise him in the heights.
2 Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his hosts.
3 Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all stars of light.
4 Praise him, {highest heavens}, and waters above the heavens.
5 Let them praise the name of Yahweh, because he commanded and they were created.
6 And he put them in place forever and ever, [by] a decree he gave that will not pass away.
7 Praise Yahweh from the earth-- great sea creatures and all deeps,
8 fire and hail, snow and cloud, stormy wind doing his bidding,
9 the mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars,
10 beasts and all cattle, creeping things and {flying birds},
11 kings of [the] earth and all peoples, princes and all judges of [the] earth,
12 young men and young women as well, [the] old [together] with [the] young--
13 let them praise the name of Yahweh, because his name alone [is] is exalted. His splendor [is] above earth and heavens.
14 And he has raised high a horn for his people, praise for all his faithful-- for the children of Israel, a people close to him. Praise Yah.
