Psalm 148
International Standard Version Par ▾ 

Let All the Earth Praise the LORD


Praise the LORD from heaven;

praise him in the highest places.

2Praise him, all his angels;

praise him, all his armies!

3Praise him, sun and moon;

praise him, all you shining stars.a

4Praise him, you heaven of heavens,

and you waters above the heavens.

5Let them praise the name of the LORD,

for he himself gave the command that they be created.

6He set them in place to last forever and ever;

he gave the command and will not rescind it.

7Praise the LORD, you from the earth,

you creatures of the sea

and all you depths,

8fire, hail, snow, fog, and wind storm

that carry out his command,b

9mountains and every hill,

fruit trees and cedars,

10living creatures and livestock,

insects and flying birds,

11earthly kings and all peoples,

nobles and all court officials of the earth,

12young men and young women alike,

along with older people and children.

13Let them praise the name of the LORD,

for his name alone is lifted up;

his majesty transcends earth and heaven.

14He has raised up a source of strengthc for his people,

an object of praise for all of his holy ones,

that is, for the people of Israel who are near him.


a 148:3 Lit. you stars of light
