148  Praise Jah!* Praise Jehovah from the heavens;+ Praise him in the heights.   Praise him, all his angels.+ Praise him, all his army.+   Praise him, sun and moon. Praise him, all shining stars.+   Praise him, O highest heavens* And waters above the heavens.   Let them praise the name of Jehovah, For he commanded, and they were created.+   He keeps them established forever and ever;+ He has issued a decree that will not pass away.+   Praise Jehovah from the earth, You great sea creatures and all deep waters,   You lightning and hail, snow and thick clouds, You storm wind, carrying out 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 nations, You princes and all you judges of the earth,+ 12  You young men and young women,* Old men and young together.* 13  Let them praise the name of Jehovah, For his name alone is unreachably high.+ His majesty is above earth and heaven.+ 14  He will exalt the strength* of his people, For the praise of all his loyal ones, Of the sons of Israel, the people close to him. Praise Jah!*
