1 Praise Yahweh!
You people who serve Yahweh, praise him!
Praise ◄him/his name►!
2 Yahweh should be praised now and forever!
3 People who live in the east and people who live in the west,
everyone, should praise Yahweh [MTY]!
4 Yahweh rules [MTY] over all the nations,
and high in the heavens he shows that his glory is very great.
5 There is no one [RHQ] who is like Yahweh, our God,
who lives/sits/rules in the highest heaven,
6 and looks far down through the heavens and sees the people on the earth.
7 Sometimes he lifts poor people up so that they no longer sit in the dirt;
he helps needy people so that they no longer sit on heaps of ashes
8 and causes them to be honored by sitting next to princes,
the sons of the kings who rule their people.
9 He also enables women who have no children to have a family;
he causes them to be happy mothers.
