1 Praise ye LORD. Praise, O ye servants of LORD. Praise the name of LORD. 2 Blessed be the name of LORD from this time forth and for evermore. 3 From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same LORD's name is to be praised.
4 LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. 5 Who is like LORD our God who has his seat on high, 6 and [yet] looks upon the low things in heaven and in the earth. 7 He raises up a poor man out of the dust, and lifts up a needy man from the dunghill, 8 that he may set him with rulers, even with the rulers of his people. 9 He makes the barren woman to keep house, a joyful mother of sons. Praise ye LORD.
