Psalm 148:1-14

148  Praise Jah, YOU people!*+Praise Jehovah from the heavens,+Praise him in the heights.+   Praise him, all YOU his angels.+Praise him, all YOU his army.+   Praise him, YOU sun and moon.+Praise him, all YOU stars of light.+   Praise him, YOU heavens of the heavens,+And YOU waters that are above the heavens.+   Let them praise the name of Jehovah;+For he himself commanded, and they were created.+   And he keeps them standing forever, to time indefinite.+A regulation he has given, and it will not pass away.+   Praise Jehovah from the earth,+YOU sea monsters and all YOU watery deeps,*+   YOU fire and hail, snow and thick smoke,+You tempestuous wind,* accomplishing his word,+   YOU mountains and all YOU hills,+YOU fruit trees and all YOU cedars,+ 10  YOU wild animals and all YOU domestic animals,+YOU creeping things and winged birds,+ 11  YOU kings of the earth+ and all YOU national groups,YOU princes+ and all YOU judges of the earth,+ 12  YOU young+ men and also YOU virgins,+YOU old men+ together with boys.+ 13  Let them praise the name of Jehovah,+For his name alone is unreachably high.+His dignity is above earth and heaven.+ 14  And he will exalt the horn of his people,+The praise of all his loyal ones,+Of the sons of Israel, the people near to him.+Praise Jah, YOU people!+
