Psalms 113:1-115:3

Psalm 113

Praise the Lord.113:1 Hebrew Hallelu Yah; also in verse 9

Praise the Lord, you his servants;

praise the name of the Lord.

Let the name of the Lord be praised,

both now and forevermore.

From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,

the name of the Lord is to be praised.

The Lord is exalted over all the nations,

his glory above the heavens.

Who is like the Lord our God,

the One who sits enthroned on high,

who stoops down to look

on the heavens and the earth?

He raises the poor from the dust

and lifts the needy from the ash heap;

he seats them with princes,

with the princes of his people.

He settles the childless woman in her home

as a happy mother of children.

Praise the Lord.

Psalm 114

When Israel came out of Egypt,

Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,

Judah became God’s sanctuary,

Israel his dominion.

The sea looked and fled,

the Jordan turned back;

the mountains leaped like rams,

the hills like lambs.

Why was it, sea, that you fled?

Why, Jordan, did you turn back?

Why, mountains, did you leap like rams,

you hills, like lambs?

Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord,

at the presence of the God of Jacob,

who turned the rock into a pool,

the hard rock into springs of water.

Psalm 115

Not to us, Lord, not to us

but to your name be the glory,

because of your love and faithfulness.

Why do the nations say,

“Where is their God?”

Our God is in heaven;

he does whatever pleases him.
