and you (F)waters above the heavens!

you (M)great sea creatures and all deeps,

(S)fruit trees and all (T)cedars!

princes and all rulers of the earth!
12 Young men and maidens together,
old men and children!
13 (X)Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for (Y)his name alone is exalted;
(Z)his majesty is above earth and heaven.

for the people of Israel who are (AC)near to him.
(AD)Praise the Lord!
