Psalm 113
World English Bible [Par] 

The Lord Exalts the Humble

(1 Samuel 1:1-8; 1 Kings 22:51-53; 2 Kings 1:1-16)

1Praise Yah! Praise, you servants of Yahweh, praise Yahweh’s name.

2Blessed be Yahweh’s name, from this time forward and forever more.

3From the rising of the sun to its going down, Yahweh’s name is to be praised.

4Yahweh is high above all nations, his glory above the heavens.

5Who is like Yahweh, our God, who has his seat on high,

6who stoops down to see in heaven and in the earth?

7He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts up the needy from the ash heap,

8that he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

9He settles the barren woman in her home as a joyful mother of children. Praise Yah!
