Alleluia, a Psalm of Aggaeus and Zacharias.
1 Praise you° the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the highest.
2 Praise you° him, all his angels: praise you° him, all his hosts.
3 Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you° stars and light.
4 Praise him, you° heavens of heavens, and the water that is above the heavens.
5 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he spoke, and they were made; he commanded, and they were created.
6 He has established them for ever, even for ever and ever: he has made an ordinance, and it shall not pass away.
7 Praise the Lord from the earth, you° serpents, and all deeps.
8 Fire, hail, snow, ice, stormy wind; the things that perform his word.
9 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
10 wild beasts, and all cattle; reptiles, and winged birds:
11 kings of the earth, and all peoples; princes, and all judges of the earth:
12 young men and virgins, old men with youths:
13 let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name only is exalted; his praise is above the earth and heaven,
14 and he shall exalt the horn of his people, * Or, who is the praise of. there is a hymn for all his saints, even of the children of Israel, a people who draw near to him.
*148:14 Or, who is the praise of.
