The Psalms

Psalm 113

An exhortation to praise God for his excellency, 1-5; for his mercy, 6-9.

1 Praise the LORD. Praise, O servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.

2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.

3 From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, the LORD'S name is to be praised.

4 The LORD is high above all nations and his glory above the heavens.

5 Who is like 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 the poor out of the dust and lifts the needy out of the dunghill,

8 So 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 children. Praise the LORD.
