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.

  • 113:1 Praise, O ye servants of the LORD
    We are taught that this psalm teaches us that this there is a two fold meaning in this psalm. First to praise those servants of the Lord. And also Bless the Lord thy God. This combines the previous two psalms into one cohesive story of God's relationship with His people and His people with God. A living relationship that has continued to this very day. This is because our God is a living God and still relates to His people each and every day. We learn and understand that God is raised above all nations, and you know rightfully so. There is nothing above God. Can you ever think that anyone would even consider such a thing. How foolish indeed.

    Know understand this, God raises up man that is humble in mind, body and spirit. The poor, forgotten, set aside ones. There is no dought that God loves all of His children. He is after all the Creator of everything is he not? We are His children created out of love, are we not? As we are told in this psalm we are vital to our Lord thy God, we are in partnership with our Father God, are we not? The answer has been, always a resounding Yes. Amen. Carl
