Psalms 148

CLV(i) 1 Praise Yah. Praise Yahweh from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights. 2 Praise Him, all His messengers; Praise Him, all His hosts." 3 Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all stars of light." 4 Praise Him, heavens of the heavens, And the waters that are above the heavens." 5 May they praise the Name of Yahweh, For He Himself determined, and they were created." 6 He makes them stand for the future, for the eon; He has set down a statute, and it shall not pass away." 7 Praise Yahweh from the earth, Sea monsters and every abyss, 8 Fire and hail, snow and fume, Tempestuous wind, performing His word, 9 Mountains and all hills, Fruit trees and all cedars, 10 Wild animal and every domestic beast, Reptile and winged bird, 11 Kings of the earth and all national groups, Chiefs and all judges of the earth, 12 Choice young men and virgins too, Old men along with youths." 13 May they praise the Name of Yahweh, For an Impregnable Retreat is His Name, His alone; His splendor is over the earth and heavens;" 14 He has raised up a horn for His people, Praise for all His benign ones, For the sons of Israel, a people near Him. Praise Yah."
