Psalm 148

CREATION’S PRAISE OF THE LORD

Hallelujah!

Praise the Lord from the heavens;

praise him in the heights.a

Praise him, all his angels;

praise him, all his heavenly armies.b

Praise him, sun and moon;

praise him, all you shining stars.c

Praise him, highest heavens,

and you waters above the heavens.d

Let them praise the name of the Lord,

for he commanded, and they were created.e

He set them in position forever and ever;

he gave an order that will never pass away.f

Praise the Lord from the earth,

all sea monsters and ocean depths,g

lightningA and hail, snow and cloud,

stormy wind that executes his command,h

mountains and all hills,

fruit trees and all cedars,i

10 wild animals and all cattle,

creatures that crawl and flying birds,j

11 kings of the earth and all peoples,

princes and all judges of the earth,k

12 young men as well as young women,

old and young together.l

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,

for his name alone is exalted.

His majesty covers heaven and earth.m

14 He has raised up a horn for his people,

resulting in praise to all his faithful ones,

to the Israelites, the people close to him.n

Hallelujah!

About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
