Psalm 148

Praise to the Lord From Creation

1 Praise 1the Lord!

Praise the Lord from the heavens;

Praise Him in the heights!

2 Praise Him, all His angels;

Praise Him, all His hosts!

3 Praise Him, sun and moon;

Praise Him, all you stars of light!

4 Praise Him, ayou heavens of heavens,

And byou waters above the heavens!

5 Let them praise the name of the Lord,

For cHe commanded and they were created.

6 dHe also established them forever and ever;

He made a decree which shall not pass away.

7 Praise the Lord from the earth,

eYou great sea creatures and all the depths;

8 Fire and hail, snow and clouds;

Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;

9 fMountains and all hills;

Fruitful trees and all cedars;

10 Beasts and all cattle;

Creeping things and flying fowl;

11 Kings of the earth and all peoples;

Princes and all judges of the earth;

12 Both young men and maidens;

Old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,

For His gname alone is exalted;

His glory is above the earth and heaven.

14 And He hhas exalted the 2horn of His people,

The praise of iall His saints—

Of the children of Israel,

jA people near to Him.

3Praise the Lord!


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
