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.


  1. Psalm 148:1 Hebrew hallelu Yah
  2. Psalm 148:14 The word horn is a reference to power. Here it refers to the Messiah.
