1Halleluyah!
Praise Adonai from the heavens!
Praise him in the heights!
2Praise him, all his angels!
Praise him, all his armies!
3Praise him, sun and moon!
Praise him, all shining stars!
4Praise him, highest heaven,
and waters above the heavens!
5Let them praise the name of Adonai;
for he commanded, and they were created.
6He established them forever and ever;
he has given a law to which they must conform.
7Praise Adonai from the earth,
sea monsters and watery depths,
8fire and hail, snow and mist,
storm-winds that obey his word,
9mountains and every hill,
fruit trees and all cedars,
10wild animals and all livestock,
creeping reptiles, flying birds,
11kings of the earth and all peoples,
princes and all rulers on earth,
12young men and women alike,
old men and children.
13Let them praise the name of Adonai,
for his name alone is exalted;
his glory is above both earth and heaven.
14He has increased the power of his people,
granted praise to all his faithful,
to the descendants of Isra’el,
a people close to him.
Halleluyah!
