1 Praise the Lord, you° servants of his, praise, the name of the Lord.
2 Let the name of the Lord be blessed, from this present time and for ever.
3 From the rising of the sun to his setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised.
4 The Lord is high above all the nations; his glory is above the heavens.
5 Who is as the Lord our God? who dwells in the high places,
6 and yet looks upon the low things in heaven, and on the earth:
7 who lifts up the poor from the earth, and raises up the needy from the dunghill;
8 to set him with princes, even with the princes of his people:
9 who settles the barren woman in a house, as a mother rejoicing over children.
