|<< Psalm 113 >>|
The Lord Exalts the Humble
(1 Samuel 1:1-8; 1 Kings 22:51-53; 2 Kings 1:1-16)
1Praise the Lord, ye children: praise ye the name of the Lord.
2Blessed be the name of the Lord, from henceforth now and for ever.
3From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the name of the Lord is worthy of praise.
4The Lord is high above all nations; and his glory above the heavens.
5Who is as the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high:
6and looketh down on the low things in heaven and in earth?
7Raising up the needy from the earth, and lifting up the poor out of the dunghill::
8That he may place him with princes, with the princes of his people.
9Who maketh a barren woman to dwell in a house, the joyful mother of children.
