An exhortation to praise God for his merciful condescension to his creatures.
1 Praisea ye the Lord. Praise, 1O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.
2 1Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore.
3 1From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be praised.
4 The 1Lord is high above all nations, and 2his glory above the heavens.
5 1Who is like unto the Lord our God, who adwelleth on high,
6 Who 1humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
7 He 1raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
8 That 1he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
9 He 1maketh the barren woman ato keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. 2Praise ye the Lord.
