Psalm 113:1-9

  • God on high raises the lowly

    • Jehovah’s name praised forever (2)

    • God stoops down (6)

113  Praise Jah!* Offer praise, you servants of Jehovah,Praise the name of Jehovah.   May Jehovah’s name be praisedFrom now on and forever.+   From the rising of the sun to its setting,Let Jehovah’s name be praised.+   Jehovah is high above all the nations;+His glory is above the heavens.+   Who is like Jehovah our God,+The one who dwells* on high?   He stoops down to look on heaven and earth,+   Raising the lowly from the dust. He lifts up the poor from the ash heap*+   In order to make him sit with nobles,With the nobles of his people.   He gives the barren woman a homeAs a happy mother with children.*+ Praise Jah!*


Or “Hallelujah!” “Jah” is a shortened form of the name Jehovah.
Or “sits enthroned.”
Or possibly, “garbage dump.”
Lit., “sons.”
Or “Hallelujah!” “Jah” is a shortened form of the name Jehovah.
