1Praise the LORD .
2Let the name of the LORD be praised, both now and forevermore.
3From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised.
4The LORD is exalted over all the nations, his glory above the heavens.
5Who is like the LORD our God, the One who sits enthroned on high,
6who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?
7He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
