Psalm 148 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

Psalm 148

Praise Him, All Creation

Praise Him, All Creation

Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise From the Heavens

Praise the Lord from the heavens.
Praise him in the heights.
Praise him, all his angels.
Praise him, all his armies.
Praise him, sun and moon.
Praise him, all you bright stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens
and you waters which are above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of the Lord,
because he commanded, and they were created.
He caused them to stand forever and ever.
He gave a decree, and it will not pass away.

Praise From the Earth

Praise the Lord from the earth,
great sea creatures and all the depths,
fire and hail, snow and fog,
storm winds that obey his word,
mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
crawling creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all peoples,
officials and all judges on earth,
12 young men and also young women,
old people with young people.
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 He has raised up a horn[b] for his people—
the praise of all his favored ones—
for the children of Israel, the people close to him.
Praise the Lord.

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.
