Psalm 113Amplified Bible (AMP)

The Lord Exalts the Humble.

113 [a]Praise the Lord! ([b]Hallelujah!)
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
Praise the name of the Lord.

Blessed be the name of the Lord
From this time forth and forever.

From the rising of the sun to its setting
The name of the Lord is to be praised [with awe-inspired reverence].

The Lord is high above all nations,
And His glory above the heavens.


Who is like the Lord our God,
Who is enthroned on high,

Who humbles Himself to regard
The heavens and the earth?

He raises the poor out of the dust
And lifts the needy from the ash heap,

That He may seat them with princes,
With the princes of His people.

He makes the barren woman live in the house
As a joyful mother of children.
Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)

Psalm 113New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 113

Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise the Lord, you his servants;
    praise the name of the Lord.
Let the name of the Lord be praised,
    both now and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
    the name of the Lord is to be praised.

The Lord is exalted over all the nations,
    his glory above the heavens.
Who is like the Lord our God,
    the One who sits enthroned on high,
who stoops down to look
    on the heavens and the earth?

He raises the poor from the dust
    and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
he seats them with princes,
    with the princes of his people.
He settles the childless woman in her home
    as a happy mother of children.

Praise the Lord.
