1  Hallelujah. O servants of Hashem, give praise; 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 יְהֹוָה הַלְלוּ אֶת־שֵׁם יְהֹוָה׃

113:1   O servants of Hashem, give praise

The first verse of this psalm calls on the servants of Hashem to bless the name of Hashem. This reflects a synthesis of the previous two psalms, one focusing on God, and the other on people who fear God. In this psalm, God is raised above all nations, and, at the same time, He raises up the humble and poor in status and in spirit. This is another expression of the vital partnership between Hashem and His people.2 comments

2  Let the name of Hashem be blessed now and forever.

ב  יְהִי שֵׁם יְהֹוָה מְבֹרָךְ מֵעַתָּה וְעַד־עוֹלָם׃

3  From east to west the name of Hashem is praised.

ג  מִמִּזְרַח־שֶׁמֶשׁ עַד־מְבוֹאוֹ מְהֻלָּל שֵׁם יְהֹוָה׃

4  Hashem is exalted above all nations; His glory is above the heavens.

ד  רָם עַל־כָּל־גּוֹיִם יְהֹוָה עַל הַשָּׁמַיִם כְּבוֹדוֹ׃

5  Who is like Hashem our God, who, enthroned on high,

ה  מִי כַּיהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ הַמַּגְבִּיהִי לָשָׁבֶת׃

6  sees what is below, in heaven and on earth?

ו  הַמַּשְׁפִּילִי לִרְאוֹת בַּשָּׁמַיִם וּבָאָרֶץ׃

7  He raises the poor from the dust, lifts up the needy from the refuse heap

ז  מְקִימִי מֵעָפָר דָּל מֵאַשְׁפֹּת יָרִים אֶבְיוֹן׃

8  to set them with the great, with the great men of His people.

ח  לְהוֹשִׁיבִי עִם־נְדִיבִים עִם נְדִיבֵי עַמּוֹ׃

9  He sets the childless woman among her household as a happy mother of children. Hallelujah.

ט  מוֹשִׁיבִי עֲקֶרֶת הַבַּיִת אֵם־הַבָּנִים שְׂמֵחָה הַלְלוּ־יָהּ׃
