Psalm 148 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

148 Praise ye Jah! Praise ye Jehovah from the heavens, Praise ye Him in high places.

Praise ye Him, all His messengers, Praise ye Him, all His hosts.

Praise ye Him, sun and moon, Praise ye Him, all stars of light.

Praise ye Him, heavens of heavens, And ye waters that are above the heavens.

They do praise the name of Jehovah, For He commanded, and they were created.

And He establisheth them for ever to the age, A statute He gave, and they pass not over.

Praise ye Jehovah from the earth, Dragons and all deeps,

Fire and hail, snow and vapour, Whirlwind doing His word;

The mountains and all heights, Fruit tree, and all cedars,

10 The wild beast, and all cattle, Creeping thing, and winged bird,

11 Kings of earth, and all peoples, Chiefs, and all judges of earth,

12 Young men, and also maidens, Aged men, with youths,

13 They praise the name of Jehovah, For His name alone hath been set on high, His honour [is] above earth and heavens.

14 And He exalteth the horn of His people, The praise of all His saints, Of the sons of Israel, a people near Him. Praise ye Jah!

Psalm 148 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 148

Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise the Lord from the heavens;
    praise him in the heights above.
Praise him, all his angels;
    praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
Praise him, sun and moon;
    praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens
    and you waters above the skies.

Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for at his command they were created,
and he established them for ever and ever—
    he issued a decree that will never pass away.

Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
    stormy winds that do his bidding,
you mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
    small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations,
    you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women,
    old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,[b]
    the praise of all his faithful servants,
    of Israel, the people close to his heart.

Praise the Lord.
