Psalm 113*

Praise of God’s Care for the Poor



Praise, you servants of the Lord,

praise the name of the Lord.a

2Blessed be the name of the Lord

both now and forever.

3From the rising of the sun to its settingb

let the name of the Lord be praised.


4High above all nations is the Lord;

above the heavens his glory.c

5Who is like the Lord our God,

enthroned on high,

6dlooking down on heaven and earth?

7He raises the needy from the dust,

lifts the poor from the ash heap,e

8Seats them with princes,

the princes of the people,

9Gives the childless wife a home,

the joyful mother of children.f
