6 He also, for all times to come, hath them establish’d sure; He hath appointed them a law, which ever shall endure.
7 Praise ye Jehovah from the earth, dragons, and ev’ry deep: 8 Fire, hail, snow, vapour, stormy wind, his word that fully keep.
9 All hills and mountains, fruitful trees, and all ye cedars high: 10 Beasts, and all cattle, creeping things, and all ye birds that fly.
11 Kings of the earth, all nations, princes, earth’s judges all: 12 Both young men, yea, and maidens too, old men, and children small.
13 Let them God’s name praise; for his name alone is excellent: His glory reacheth far above the earth and firmament.
14 His people’s horn, the praise of all his saints, exalteth he; Ev’n Isr’el’s seed, a people near to him. The Lord praise ye.
