Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
praise him in the heights!
2 Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his hosts!
3 Praise him, sun and moon,
praise him, all you shining stars!
4 Praise him, you highest heavens,
and you waters above the heavens!
5 Let them praise the name of the Lord!
For he commanded and they were created.
6 And he established them forever and ever;
he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.
7 Praise the Lord from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all deeps,
8 fire and hail, snow and mist,
stormy wind fulfilling his word!
9 Mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars!
10 Beasts and all livestock,
creeping things and flying birds!
11 Kings of the earth and all peoples,
princes and all rulers of the earth!
12 Young men and maidens together,
old men and children!
13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted;
his majesty is above earth and heaven.
14 He has raised up a horn for his people,
praise for all his saints,
for the people of Israel who are near to him.
Praise the Lord!
Psalms or hymns of praise call for God to be praised. In this type of psalm, there is generally a call to praise with reasons following. Psalms of praise go beyond immediate experience and reflect on the nature and character of God as one who delivers and provides for all creation. These psalms provide a depth and stability to our view of God regardless of current circumstances. Our psalm comes from the series called ‘endless psalms of praise' as recoded in 146-150. If you read all five in a row, you will be impressed with the length, depth and breadth of the praise offered to God. In this psalm, all of creation will unite in agreement in the worth and joy of giving God glory forever and ever. Let this psalm lead you to consider God in all his glory and to greater devotion to God.
