1Praise Yah! Praise Yahweh from the heavens; praise him in the heights!
2Praise him, all his angels! Praise him, all his army!
3Praise him, sun and moon! Praise him, all you stars of light!
4Praise him, you heavens of heavens, and you waters that are above the heavens!
5Let them praise the name of Yahweh, for he himself commanded, and they were created.
6He also set them in position forever and ever; he has made a regulation that will never pass away.
7Praise Yahweh from the earth, sea creatures and all depths;
8fire and hail, snow and smoke; stormy wind accomplishing his word;
9mountains and all hills; fruit trees and all cedars;
10animals and all livestock; creeping things and winged birds;
11kings of the earth and all peoples; rulers and all judges of the earth;
12both young men and virgins; old men with young people!
13Let them praise the name of Yahweh, for his name alone is exalted. His splendor is above the earth and the heavens,
14and he has raised up a horn for his people, a praise for all his faithful people, for the children of Israel, a people near to him. Praise Yah!
