2 Praise him, all his angels. Praise him, his entire heavenly army.
3 Praise him, sun and moon. Praise him, all shining stars.
4 Praise him, you highest heaven and the water above the sky.
5 Let them praise the name of Jehovah for they were created by his command.
6 He set them in their places forever and ever. He made it a law that no one can break.
7 Praise Jehovah from the earth. Praise him, large sea creatures and all the ocean depths.
8 Praise him lightning and hail, snow and fog, strong winds that obey his commands.
9 Praise him mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedar trees.
10 Praise him you wild animals and all domestic animals, crawling animals and birds.
11 Praise him you kings of the earth and its people, officials and all judges on the earth.
12 Praise him you young men and women, old and young together.
13 Let them praise the name of Jehovah because his name is high above all others. His glory is above heaven and earth.
14 He has given his people a strong leader, someone praiseworthy for his faithful ones, for the people of Israel, the people who are close to him. Praise Jehovah!
