Psalm 148

Hallelujah! Praise God from heaven, praise him from the mountaintops; 
   Praise him, all you his angels, praise him, all you his warriors, 
   Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, you morning stars; 
   Praise him, high heaven, praise him, heavenly rain clouds; 
   Praise, oh let them praise the name of God 
      he spoke the word, and there they were! 

He set them in place from all time to eternity; 
   He gave his orders, and that's it! 

Praise God from earth, you sea dragons, you fathomless ocean deeps; 
   Fire and hail, snow and ice, hurricanes obeying his orders; 
   Mountains and all hills, apple orchards and cedar forests; 
   Wild beasts and herds of cattle, snakes, and birds in flight; 
   Earth's kings and all races, leaders and important people, 
   Robust men and women in their prime, 
      and yes, graybeards and little children. 

Let them praise the name of God- it's the only Name worth praising. 
   His radiance exceeds anything in earth and sky; 
   he's built a monument—his very own people!

   Praise from all who love God! Israel's children, intimate friends of God.
