Psalms 113

Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  Hallelujah. Praise, O ye servants of Hashem, praise the name of Hashem.

ha-l’-lu-YAH ha-l’-LU av-DAY a-do-NAI ha-l’-LU et shaym a-do-NAI

א  הַלְלוּ יָהּ הַלְלוּ עַבְדֵי יְהוָה הַלְלוּ אֶת שֵׁם יְהוָה.

113:1   Praise, O ye servants of the LORD

The first verse of this psalm is meant to be split into two parts. It praises both the servants of the Lord and blesses the name of the Lord. This reflects a synthesis of the previous two psalms, one focusing on God, the other focusing on those who fear God. In this psalm, God is raised above all nations, and, at the same time, God raises the humble and poor in status and in spirit. This is another expression of the vital partnership between God and His people.

2  Blessed be the name of Hashem from this time forth and for ever.

ב  יְהִי שֵׁם יְהוָה מְבֹרָךְ מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם.

3  From the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof Hashem’S name is to be praised.

ג  מִמִּזְרַח שֶׁמֶשׁ עַד מְבוֹאוֹ מְהֻלָּל שֵׁם יְהוָה.

4  Hashem is high above all nations, His glory is above the heavens.

ד  רָם עַל כָּל גּוֹיִם יְהוָה עַל הַשָּׁמַיִם כְּבוֹדוֹ.

5  Who is like unto Hashem our God, that is enthroned on high,

ה  מִי כַּיהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ הַמַּגְבִּיהִי לָשָׁבֶת.

6  That looketh down low upon heaven and upon the earth?

ו  הַמַּשְׁפִּילִי לִרְאוֹת בַּשָּׁמַיִם וּבָאָרֶץ.

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

ז  מְקִימִי מֵעָפָר דָּל מֵאַשְׁפֹּת יָרִים אֶבְיוֹן.

8  That He may set him with princes, even with the princes of His people.

ח  לְהוֹשִׁיבִי עִם נְדִיבִים עִם נְדִיבֵי עַמּוֹ.

9  Who maketh the barren woman to dwell in her house as a joyful mother of children. Hallelujah.

ט  מוֹשִׁיבִי עֲקֶרֶת הַבַּיִת אֵם הַבָּנִים שְׂמֵחָה הַלְלוּ יָהּ.
