Psalm 113

English Standard Version

Praise the Lord! Praise, O servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord! (Ps 34:22; Ps 69:36; Ps 102:28; Ps 104:35; Ps 135:1) Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! (Job 1:21; Ps 115:18) From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised! (Ps 18:3; Ps 48:10; Ps 50:1; Isa 59:19; Mal 1:11) The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens! (Ps 8:1; Ps 57:5; Ps 57:11; Ps 99:2; Ps 148:13) Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high, (Ps 35:10) who looks far down on the heavens and the earth? (Ps 11:4; Ps 138:6) He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap, (Ps 107:41; Ps 136:23) to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people. (Job 36:7) He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the Lord! (Ex 1:21; 1Sa 2:5; Ps 68:6; Ps 113:1; Isa 54:1)
