An exhortation to praise God for his excellency,
Psalms 113:1 Praise ye Yah! Praise, O ye servants of Yahweh, Praise the Name of Yahweh; Psalms 113:2 Be the Name of Yahweh blessed, henceforth, even to times age-abiding. Psalms 113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going in thereof, Worthy to be praised, is the Name of Yahweh: Psalms 113:4 High above all nations, is Yahweh, Above the heavens, his glory. Psalms 113:5 Who is like Yahweh our God? that goeth on high to dwell,
for his mercy.
Psalms 113:6 That cometh down low to look, through the heavens and through the earth; Psalms 113:7 That raiseth, out of the dust, the poor, From the dunghill, uplifteth the needy; Psalms 113:8 To give a seat with nobles, with the nobles of his people! Psalms 113:9 Causing the barren woman to dwell in a household, A mother of sons in her joy! Praise ye Yah.
