Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights! (Ps 69:34; Ps 147:20; Ps 148:7; Mt 21:9) Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his hosts!

(Ge 1:7; De 10:14; 1Ki 8:27; Ne 9:6; Ps 68:33) Let them praise the name of the Lord! For he commanded and they were created. (Ps 33:6; Ps 33:9; Ps 148:13) And he established them forever and ever; he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.[1] (Es 1:19; Job 14:5; Job 28:26; Ps 104:9; Ps 119:90; Jer 31:35; Jer 33:25) Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all deeps, (Ge 1:21; Ps 74:13; Ps 148:1) fire and hail, snow and mist, stormy wind fulfilling his word!
