Then the Levites—Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah(A)—said, “Stand up. Blessed be the Lord your God from everlasting to everlasting.”(B)

Blessed be your glorious name,(C)
and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise.
You,[a] Lord, are the only God.[b](D)
You created the heavens,
the highest heavens with all their stars,
the earth and all that is on it,
the seas and all that is in them.
You give life to all of them,(E)
and all the stars of heaven worship you.(F)
You, the Lord,
are the God who chose Abram
and brought him out of Ur of the Chaldeans,(G)
and changed his name to Abraham.(H)
