The psalmist exhorteth the celestial,
Psalms 148:1 Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise ye him in the high places. Psalms 148:2 Praise ye him, all his angels, praise ye him, all his hosts. Psalms 148:3 Praise ye him, O sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars and light. Psalms 148:4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens: and let all the waters that are above the heavens Psalms 148:5 Praise the name of the Lord. For he spoke, and they were made: he commanded, and they were created. Psalms 148:6 He hath established them for ever, and for ages of ages: he hath made a decree, and it shall not pass away.
Psalms 148:7 Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all ye deeps: Psalms 148:8 Fire, hail, snow, ice, stormy winds, which fulfil his word: Psalms 148:9 Mountains and all hills, fruitful trees and all cedars: Psalms 148:10 Beasts and all cattle: serpents and feathered fowls:
and the rational creatures to praise God.
Psalms 148:11 Kings of the earth and all people: princes and all judges of the earth: Psalms 148:12 Young men and maidens: let the old with the younger, praise the name of the Lord: Psalms 148:13 For his name alone is exalted. Psalms 148:14 The praise of him is above heaven and earth: and he hath exalted the horn of his people. A hymn to all his saints to the children of Israel, a people approaching to him. Alleluia.
