1Praise ye the LORD.
Praise ye the LORD from the heavens:
Praise him in the heights.
2Praise ye him, all his angels:
Praise ye him, all his hosts.
3Praise ye him, sun and moon:
Praise him, all ye stars of light.
4Praise him, ye heavens of heavens,
And ye waters that be above the heavens.
5Let them praise the name of the LORD:
For he commanded, and they were created.
6He hath also stablished them for ever and ever:
He hath made a decree which shall not pass.
7Praise the LORD from the earth,
Ye dragons, and all deeps:
8Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours;
Stormy wind fulfilling his word:
9Mountains, and all hills;
Fruitful trees, and all cedars:
10Beasts, and all cattle;
Creeping things, and flying fowl:
11Kings of the earth, and all people;
Princes, and all judges of the earth:
12Both young men, and maidens;
Old men, and children:
13Let them praise the name of the LORD:
For his name alone is excellent;
His glory is above the earth and heaven.
14He also exalteth the horn of his people,
The praise of all his saints;
Even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him.
Praise ye the LORD.
