Praise the Lord, ye servants; O praise the Name of the Lord. Blessed be the Name of the Lord from this time forth for evermore. The Lord’s Name is praised, from the rising up of the sun unto the going down of the same.
The Lord is high above all heathen, and his glory above the heavens. Who is like unto the Lord our God, that hath his dwelling so high, and yet humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven and earth? He taketh up the simple out of the dust, and lifteth the poor out of the mire, that he may set him with the princes, even with the princes of his people. He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children.
