Psalm 113

1 Praise the Lord, O sing praises, you that are his servants:
    O praise the name of the Lord.
2 Let the name of the Lord be blessed:
    from this time forward and for ever.
3 From the rising of the sun to its going down:
    let the name of the Lord be praised.
4 The Lord is exalted over all the nations:
    and his glory is above the heavens.
5 Who can be likened to the Lord our God:
    in heaven or upon the earth,
6 Who has his dwelling so high:
    yet condescends to look on things beneath?
7 He raises the lowly from the dust:
    and lifts the poor from out of the dungheap;
8 He gives them a place among the princes:
    even among the princes of his people.
9 He causes the barren woman to keep house:
    and makes her a joyful mother of children. Praise the Lord.
