Psalm 113

1Praise IAM! Praise, you servants of TheIAM, praise the name of TheIAM. 2Blessed be the name of TheIAM, from this time forth and forevermore. 3From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, TheIAM's name is to be praised. 4TheIAM is high above all nations, his glory above the heavens. 5Who is like TheIAM, our God, who has his seat on high, 6Who stoops down to see in heaven and in the earth? 7He raises up the poor out of the dust. Lifts up the needy from the ash heap; 8that he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people. 9He settles the barren woman in her home, as a joyful mother of children. Praise IAM!
