1: Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. 2: Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. 3: From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same the LORD'S name [is] to be praised. 4: The LORD [is] high above all nations, [and] his glory above the heavens. 5: Who [is] like to the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high. 6: Who humbleth [himself] to behold [the things that are] in heaven, and in the earth! 7: He raiseth the poor out of the dust, [and] lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; 8: That he may set [him] with princes, [even] with the princes of his people. 9: He maketh the barren woman to keep house, [and to be] a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.
