148:6 He hath also established them for ever and ever; He hath made a decree which shall not be transgressed.

148:7 Praise the Lord from the earth, ye sea-monsters, and all deeps;

148:8 Fire and hail, snow and vapour, stormy wind, fulfilling His word;

148:9 Mountains and all hills, fruitful trees and all cedars;

148:10 Beasts and all cattle, creeping things and winged fowl;

148:11 Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all judges of the earth;

148:12 Both young men and maidens, old men and children;

148:13 Let them praise the name of the Lord, for His name alone is exalted; His glory is above the earth and heaven.

148:14 And He hath lifted up a horn for His people, a praise for all His saints, even for the children of Israel, a people near unto Him. Hallelujah.
