Psalm 113

Chapter Summary

God exalts the humble

This psalm is a good response to 112, if we think earthly riches will always follow God’s favor. God, this psalm says, actually humbles Himself down to our level, and raises up the needy. How have you been needy, and how has He raised you up?

Day 239

Father, I bless Your name forever and I can never thank You enough for sending Your Son to live in the dust with us and promising we will sit in glory with Him!

Psalm 113:2

Psalm 113


113 Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.

Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore.

From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord‘s name is to be praised.

The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.

Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high,

Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!

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

That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.
