THE LORD FAVORS POOR PEOPLE

 

VERSE 1. Praise the LORD! Praise, you servants of the LORD, praise the LORD’s name.

VERSE 2. Blessed be the LORD’s name, from this time forward and forever more.

 

VERSE 3. From the rising of the sun to its going down, The LORD’s name is to be praised.

The LORD’s name is to be praised. The actual name of the Most High God is to used. And in the context of praise, that means it is to be sung. Or shouted.

 

VERSE 4. The LORD is high above all nations, his glory above the heavens.

 

VERSE 5. Who is like the LORD, our God, who has his seat on high,

 

VERSE 6. Who stoops down to see in heaven and in the earth?

 

VERSE 7. He raises up the poor out of the dust. Lifts up the needy from the ash heap;

raises up the poor. The LORD favors poor people.

Lifts up the needy. The LORD favors needy people.

 

VERSE 8. that he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

set him with princes. The LORD is very egalitarian. Poor people are of equal value as leaders of nations.

 

VERSE 9. He settles the barren woman in her home, as a joyful mother of children. Praise the LORD!
