148:5Praise the name of the Lord. For he spoke, and they were made: he commanded, and they were created.

148:6He hath established them for ever, and for ages of ages: he hath made a decree, and it shall not pass away.

148:7Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all ye deeps:

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

148:10Beasts and all cattle: serpents and feathered fowls:

148:11Kings of the earth and all people: princes and all judges of the earth:

148:12Young men and maidens: let the old with the younger, praise the name of the Lord:

148:13For his name alone is exalted.

148:14The praise of him is above heaven and earth: and he hath exalted the horn of his people. A hymn to all his saints to the children of Israel, a people approaching to him. Alleluia.

149:5The saints shall rejoice in glory: they shall be joyful in their beds.

149:6The high praises of God shall be in their mouth: and two-edged swords in their hands:
