Psalm 150

The 5th Hallelujah Psalm

150:1This is a special psalm to finish the Book of Psalms.

1 Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

Praise God in his temple.

Praise him high in the sky,

where he shows his great strength.

2 Praise God for the great things that he has done.

Praise him because he is great and powerful.

3 Praise him with music!

Yes! Use trumpets, harps and lyres

to praise God!

150:3The Israelites had musical instruments that are different from the ones that we use today. We do not always have the right names for them in English.

4 Dance and hit drums to praise him!

Make music with harps and flutes

to praise him!

5 Make music with big cymbals and small cymbals

to praise him!

6 Everything that is alive should praise the Lord.

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
