Let the souls of the righteous bless God (Dan 3:64-3:65)

“Bless the Lord!

Spirits of the righteous!

Souls of the righteous!

Sing praise to him!

Highly exalt him forever!

Bless the Lord!

You who are holy!

You who are humble in heart!

Sing praise to him!

Highly exalt him forever!”

The 3 men wanted the righteous people to also bless, praise, and exalt the Lord. These were both the spirits and souls of the righteous, since the soul was added to the spirit. This is probably a reference to the deceased ones. Finally, the holy and humble of heart should naturally bless, praise, and exalt the Lord.
