1 Halelu-JAH. Praise, O ye slaves of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. 2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. 3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the LORD's name is to be praised.
4 The LORD is high above all Gentiles and his glory above the heavens. 5 Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwells on high, 6 who humbles himself to behold the things that are in heaven and in the earth! 7 He raises up the poor out of the dust and lifts the destitute out of the dunghill; 8 that he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people. 9 He makes the barren woman to keep house and to be a joyful mother of sons. Halelu-JAH.
