New American Bible (Revised Edition)
12 Young men and women too,
old and young alike.
13 Let them all praise the Lord’s name,
for his name alone is exalted,
His majesty above earth and heaven.(A)
14 [a]He has lifted high the horn of his people;
to the praise of all his faithful,
the Israelites, the people near to him.
- 148:14 Has lifted high the horn of his people: the horn symbolizes strength, the concrete noun for the abstract. Of all peoples, God has chosen Israel to return praise and thanks in a special way.
New International Version
