Praise Jehovah from the heavens;+
Praise him in the heights.
2 Praise him, all his angels.+
Praise him, all his army.+
3 Praise him, sun and moon.
Praise him, all shining stars.+
7 Praise Jehovah from the earth,
You great sea creatures and all deep waters,
8 You lightning and hail, snow and thick clouds,
You storm wind, carrying out his word,+
9 You mountains and all you hills,+
You fruit trees and all you cedars,+
10 You wild animals+ and all you domestic animals,
You creeping things and winged birds,
11 You kings of the earth and all you nations,
You princes and all you judges of the earth,+
12 You young men and young women,*
Old men and young together.*
His majesty is above earth and heaven.+
14 He will exalt the strength* of his people,
For the praise of all his loyal ones,
Of the sons of Israel, the people close to him.
