Psalm 148 Darby Translation (DARBY)

148 Hallelujah! Praise Jehovah from the heavens; praise him in the heights.

Praise ye him, all his angels; praise ye him, all his hosts.

Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all ye stars of light.

Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that are above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of Jehovah, for he it is that commanded, and they were created:

And he established them for ever and ever; he made [for them] a statute which shall not pass.

Praise Jehovah from the earth, ye sea-monsters, and all deeps;

Fire and hail, snow and vapour, stormy wind fulfilling his word;

Mountains and all hills, fruit-trees and all cedars;

10 Beasts and all cattle, creeping things and winged fowl;

11 Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all judges of the earth;

12 Both young men and maidens, old men with youths,—

13 Let them praise the name of Jehovah: for his name alone is exalted; his majesty is above the earth and the heavens.

14 And he hath lifted up the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints, [even] of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Hallelujah!

Psalm 148 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 148

Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise the Lord from the heavens;
    praise him in the heights above.
Praise him, all his angels;
    praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
Praise him, sun and moon;
    praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens
    and you waters above the skies.

Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for at his command they were created,
and he established them for ever and ever—
    he issued a decree that will never pass away.

Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
    stormy winds that do his bidding,
you mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
    small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations,
    you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women,
    old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,[b]
    the praise of all his faithful servants,
    of Israel, the people close to his heart.

Praise the Lord.
