148 Halleluyah!

Praise Adonai from the heavens!
Praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels!
Praise him, all his armies!

Praise him, sun and moon!
Praise him, all shining stars!
Praise him, highest heaven,
and waters above the heavens!

Let them praise the name of Adonai;
for he commanded, and they were created.
He established them forever and ever;
he has given a law to which they must conform.

Praise Adonai from the earth,
sea monsters and watery depths,
fire and hail, snow and mist,
storm-winds that obey his word,
mountains and every hill,
fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all livestock,
creeping reptiles, flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all peoples,
princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women alike,
old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of Adonai,
for his name alone is exalted;
his glory is above both earth and heaven.

14 He 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!

Praise him, sun(E) and moon;
    praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens(F)
    and you waters above the skies.(G)

    he issued a decree(J) that will never pass away.

Praise the Lord(K) from the earth,
    you great sea creatures(L) and all ocean depths,(M)

12 young men and women,
    old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,(S)
    for his name alone is exalted;
    his splendor(T) is above the earth and the heavens.(U)
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,[b](V)
    the praise(W) of all his faithful servants,(X)
    of Israel, the people close to his heart.(Y)

Praise the Lord.
