Psalms - Chapter 113

The King James Version Basic English Version (BBE)

1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.

1 Let the Lord be praised. O you servants of the Lord, give praise to the name of the Lord.

2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.

2 Let blessing be on the name of the Lord, from this time and for ever.

3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD's name is to be praised.

3 From the coming up of the sun to its going down, the Lord's name is to be praised.

4 The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.

4 The Lord is high over all nations, and his glory is higher than the heavens.

5 Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,

5 Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high,

6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!

6 Looking down on the heavens, and on the earth?

7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;

7 He takes the poor man out of the dust, lifting him up from his low position;

8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

8 To give him a place among the rulers, even with the rulers of his people.

9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.

9 He gives the unfertile woman a family, making her a happy mother of children. Give praise to the Lord.
