Psalm 148 (ESV)

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
    praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels;
    praise him, all his hosts!

Praise him, sun and moon,
    praise him, all you shining stars!
Praise him, you highest heavens,
    and you waters above the heavens!

Let them praise the name of the Lord!
    For he commanded and they were created.
And he established them forever and ever;
    he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.

Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you great sea creatures and all deeps,
fire and hail, snow and mist,
    stormy wind fulfilling his word!

Mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars!
10 Beasts and all livestock,
    creeping things and flying birds!

11 Kings of the earth and all peoples,
    princes and all rulers of the earth!
12 Young men and maidens together,
    old men and children!

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    his majesty is above earth and heaven.
14 He has raised up a horn for his people,
    praise for all his saints,
    for the people of Israel who are near to him.
Praise the Lord!

Back: Psalm 147

This Post Has 2 Comments

  1. Praise the Lord!

    Thirteen times in today's psalm we read the word "praise" in relation to the lord. 

    Praise (the Lord)
    Praise (Him)
    Praise (the name of the Lord)
    Praise (for all His saints)

    In the previous three chapters of the psalms, "praise" is used fourteen times. In the final two chapters of the psalms "praise" appears a total of eighteen times. Combine that with today's psalm and "praise" appears forty-five times in the final six chapters of the psalms (forty-six if you include the heading in Psalm 145 which is titled, "A Song of Praise. Of David."

    I want to praise you in all things
    I want to praise you in the songs I sing
    I want to praise you with the words I say
    I want to praise you today

  2. That reminds me of one of my favorite songs –

    I want to praise God for all things, because I know that even if He doesn't answer my prayers the way I want Him to, He is answering them, and I only want His will, because it's always for the best.
