Psalm 113

Psalm 113

God the Helper of the Needy

1 Praise the Lord!

Praise, O servants of the Lord;

praise the name of the Lord.

2 Blessed be the name of the Lord

from this time on and forevermore.

3 From the rising of the sun to its setting

the name of the Lord is to be praised.

4 The Lord is high above all nations,

and his glory above the heavens.

5 Who is like the Lord our God,

who is seated on high,

6 who looks far down

on the heavens and the earth?

7 He raises the poor from the dust,

and lifts the needy from the ash heap,

8 to make them sit with princes,

with the princes of his people.

9 He gives the barren woman a home,

making her the joyous mother of children.

Praise the Lord!
