Amplified Bible

Psalm 113

The Lord Exalts the Humble.

1[a]Praise the Lord! ([b]Hallelujah!)
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
Praise the name of the Lord.

Blessed be the name of the Lord
From this time forth and forever.

From the rising of the sun to its setting
The name of the Lord is to be praised [with awe-inspired reverence].

The Lord is high above all nations,
And His glory above the heavens.


Who is like the Lord our God,
Who is enthroned on high,

Who humbles Himself to regard
The heavens and the earth?

He raises the poor out of the dust
And lifts the needy from the ash heap,

That He may seat them with princes,
With the princes of His people.

He makes the barren woman live in the house
As a joyful mother of children.
Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)

詩篇 113

1ハレルヤ。
主に仕える人々は、主の御名をほめたたえなさい。
永遠から永遠まで、
主の御名がたたえられますように。
夜明けから日没まで賛美し続けなさい。
主は国々を高い所から見下ろし、
ご栄光は世界中に満ちています。
これほど高い御座についておられる神である主を、
ほかのだれと比べることができましょう。
主は、はるか下の天と地を、身をかがめて眺めては、
弱い者や、飢えた者を拾い上げ、
人々の指導者とされるのです。
不妊の女は子宝に恵まれ、幸せな母親となるのです。
ハレルヤ。神をほめたたえなさい。
