1Praise the Lord! Servants of the Lord, praise him! Praise the Lord’s name. 2May the Lord’s name be blessed, now and forever more. 3May the Lord’s name be praised from the rising sun in the east to the place where the sun goes down. 4The Lord is higher than all nations. His glory rises to the skies. 5No person is like the Lord our God. God sits high in heaven. 6˻God is so high above us˼ that he must look down to see the sky and the earth, 7God lifts poor people out of the dirt. God takes beggars from the garbage dump. 8And God makes those people important. God makes those people important leaders. 9A woman might not have children. But God will give children to her and make her happy. Praise the Lord!
