Book V
The Whole Creation Invoked to Praise Jehovah
[1]  PRAISE 1 ye Jehovah.
Praise ye Jehovah from the heavens:
Praise him in the heights.
[2]  Praise ye him, all his angels:
Praise ye him, all his host.
[3]  Praise ye him, sun and moon:
Praise him, all ye stars of light.
[4]  Praise him, ye heavens of heavens,
And ye waters that are above the heavens.
[5]  Let them praise the name of Jehovah;
For he commanded, and they were created.
[6]  He hath also established them for ever and ever:
He hath made a decree which 2 shall not pass away.
[7]  Praise Jehovah from the earth,
Ye sea-monsters, and all deeps;
[8]  Fire and hail, snow and vapor;
Stormy wind, fulfilling his word;
[9]  Mountains and all hills;
Fruitful trees and all cedars;
[10]  Beasts and all cattle;
Creeping things and flying birds;
[11]  Kings of the earth and all peoples;
Princes and all judges of the earth;
[12]  Both young men and virgins;
Old men and children:
[13]  Let them praise the name of Jehovah;
For his name alone is exalted;
His glory is above the earth and the heavens.
[14]  And he hath lifted up the 3 horn of his people,
The praise of all his saints;
Even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him.
Praise 4 ye Jehovah.
