113:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.|
113:2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD's name is to be praised.
113:4 The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
113:5 Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
113:6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
113:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
113:8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
113:9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.
114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
114:3 The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.
114:4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.
114:5 What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
114:6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?
114:7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
114:8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
115:1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
115:2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?
115:3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
115:8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.
115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
115:10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
115:11 Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
115:12 The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.
115:13 He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.
115:14 The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
115:15 Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
115:16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.
115:18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.
