Praise Yahweh from the heavens;
praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his army!
Praise him, all you stars of light!
and you waters that are above the heavens!
for he himself commanded, and they were created.
he has made a regulation that will never pass away.
sea creatures and all depths;
stormy wind accomplishing his word;
fruit trees and all cedars;
creeping things and winged birds;
rulers and all judges of the earth;
old men with young people!
for his name alone is exalted.
His splendor is above the earth and the heavens,
a praise for all his faithful people,
for the children of Israel, a people near to him.
