|<< Psalm 113 >>|
American Standard Version
The Lord Exalts the Humble
(1 Samuel 1:1-8; 1 Kings 22:51-53; 2 Kings 1:1-16)
1Praise ye Jehovah. Praise, O ye servants of Jehovah, Praise the name of Jehovah.
2Blessed be the name of Jehovah From this time forth and for evermore.
3From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same Jehovah's name is to be praised.
4Jehovah is high above all nations, And his glory above the heavens.
5Who is like unto Jehovah our God, That hath his seat on high,
6That humbleth himself to behold The things that are in heaven and in the earth?
7He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, And lifteth up the needy from the dunghill;
8That he may set him with princes, Even with the princes of his people.
9He maketh the barren woman to keep house, And to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye Jehovah.
