What does Psalm 148:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 148:5

Let them praise the name of the Lord
Set forth the glory of the nature and perfections of God, and celebrate the praise of them; even all celestial creatures, the angels, the hosts of heaven, the sun, moon, and stars; the heavens, and the haven of heavens, and the waters above them; and that for the following reasons;

for he commanded, and they were created;
they are all his creatures, and therefore should praise him: he is the "Father of spirits", of angelic spirits, as well as the spirits of men; and the "Father of lights", of all the luminaries of the heavens; and he has made the heavens themselves, and all their hosts, and the firmament dividing the waters above and below; and all this by an almighty "fiat", at a word of command; he spoke, and they came into being at once, ( Hebrews 12:9 ) ( James 1:17 ) ( Psalms 33:6 Psalms 33:9 ) .
