Praise Jehovah from the heavens;+
Praise him in the heights.
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,+
You fruit trees and all you cedars,+
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,+
Old men and young together.a
His majesty is above earth and heaven.+
For the praise of all his loyal ones,
Of the sons of Israel, the people close to him.
