Blessed be the name of the Lord—Who is like unto the Lord our God?
1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.
2 Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore.
3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised.
4 The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high,
6 Who ahumbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
7 He araiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
9 He maketh the abarren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful bmother of cchildren. Praise ye the Lord.
