OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • 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 praised From 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 home As a happy mother with children.*+ Praise Jah!*
