Book of Psalms

The Douay-Rheims Bible


Chapter 148

1    Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise ye him in the high places.
2    Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
3    Praise ye him, O sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars and light.
4    Praise him, ye heavens of heavens: and let all the waters that are above the heavens
5    Praise the name of the Lord. For he spoke, and they were made: he commanded, and they were created.
6    He hath established them for ever, and for ages of ages: he hath made a decree, and it shall not pass away.
7    Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all ye deeps:
8    Fire, hail, snow, ice, stormy winds which fulfill his word:
9    Mountains and all hills, fruitful trees and all cedars:
10    Beasts and all cattle: serpents and feathered fowls:
11    Kings of the earth and all people: princes and all judges of the earth:
12    Young men and maidens: let the old with the younger, praise the name of the Lord:
13    For his name alone is exalted.
14    The 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.
