Parallel
148
1I Praise 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 host.
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 away.
7Praise the LORD from the earth,
Ye dragons, and all deeps:
8Fire and hail, snow and vapour;
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 peoples;
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 exalted:
His glory is above the earth and heaven.
14And he hath lifted up 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.
