Psalm 113:1-9 (ASV)1 Praise ye Jehovah. Praise, O ye servants of Jehovah, Praise the name of Jehovah.2 Blessed be the name of Jehovah From this time forth and for evermore.3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same Jehovah's name is to be praised.4 Jehovah is high above all nations, And his glory above the heavens.5 Who is like unto Jehovah our God, That hath his seat on high,6 That humbleth himself to behold The things that are in heaven and in the earth?7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, And lifteth up the needy from the dunghill;
8 That he may set him with princes, Even with the princes of his people.9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, And to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye Jehovah.
Praise To The Merciful God
Psalm 113 is the first of the “Hallel” psalms which were sung at the three Feasts of the Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles. These were the feasts that Jewish males were required to attend annually in Jerusalem
The psalmist opens with and appeal to the worshipers of the Lord. The writer appeals to them to speak to the character of God’s nature and manifestations. The praise is to be universal and unending. Blessed be the name of Jehovah From this time forth and for evermore.From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same Jehovah's name is to be praised.
He is to be praised because there is none like Him. Who is like unto Jehovah our God, Jehovah is beyond the range of l human experience., and present throughout creation. In other words He is omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent. At the same time Jehovah considers the needs of mankind. He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, And lifteth up the needy from the dunghill;
Jehovah is worthy to be praised. The psalm begins and ends with “Praise ye Jehovah” (Hallelujah)
