God’s Majesty and Care for the Needy
1Praise Yah!#Hebrew hallelujah
Praise, O servants of Yahweh,
praise the name of Yahweh.
2Let the name of Yahweh be blessed,
from now until forever.
3From the rising of the sun to its setting,
let the name of Yahweh be blessed.
4Yahweh is high above all nations;
his glory is above the heavens.
5Who is like Yahweh our God,
who is enthroned on high,#Or “who dwells on high”
6who condescends to look at#Hebrew “makes low to see”
what is in the heavens and in the earth?
7He raises the helpless from the dust;
he lifts the needy from the ash heap,
8to seat them with princes,
with the princes of his people.
9He causes the barren woman of the house to dwell
as the happy mother of children.
Praise Yah!#Hebrew hallelujah
