113:1 Praise the LORD!
Praise, you servants of the LORD,
praise the name of the LORD!
113:2 May the LORD’s name be praised
now and forevermore!
113:3 From east to west
the LORD’s name is deserving of praise.
113:4 The LORD is exalted over all the nations;
his splendor reaches beyond the sky.
113:5 Who can compare to the LORD our God,
who sits on a high throne?
113:6 He bends down to look
at the sky and the earth.
113:7 He raises the poor from the dirt,
and lifts up the needy from the garbage pile,
113:8 that he might seat him with princes,
with the princes of his people.
113:9 He makes the barren woman of the family
a happy mother of children.
Praise the LORD!
