1Praise ye Hashem. Praise O ye avadim of Hashem, praise the Shem of Hashem. 2Blessed be the Shem of Hashem from this time forth and forevermore. 3From the rising of the shemesh unto the going down of the same the Shem of Hashem is to be praised. 4Hashem is high above kol Goyim, and His kavod above HaShomayim. 5Who is like unto Hashem Eloheinu, Who dwelleth on high, 6Who stoopeth down to behold the things that are in Shomayim, and in ha'aretz! 7He raiseth up the poor out of the aphar (dust), and lifteth the needy out of the ash heap; 8That he may seat him with princes, even with the princes of amo (His people). 9He settleth the akeret (barren woman) in her bais to be a happy em of banim. Praise ye Hashem.
