Psalms

Chapter 113

1

Hallelujah! 1 Praise, you servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.

2

Blessed be the name of the LORD both now and forever.

3

From the rising of the sun to its setting let the name of the LORD be praised.

4

High above all nations is the LORD; above the heavens God’s glory.

5

Who is like the LORD, our God enthroned on high,

6

looking down on heaven and earth?

7

The LORD raises the needy from the dust, lifts the poor from the ash heap,

8

Seats them with princes, the princes of the people,

9

Gives the childless wife a home, the joyful mother of children. Hallelujah!

1 [Psalm 113] A hymn exhorting the congregation to praise God’s name, i.e., the way in which God is present in the world; the name is mentioned three times in  Psalm 113:1-3. The divine name is especially honored in the temple ( Psalm 113:1) but its recognition is not limited by time ( Psalm 113:2) and space ( Psalm 113:3), for God is everywhere active ( Psalm 113:4-5) especially in rescuing the lowly faithful ( Psalm 113:7-9).
