“Blessed be the name of Yahweh
From this time on and forevermore!
From the rising of the sun to its setting
The name of Yahweh is to be praised!
Yahweh is high above all nations.
His glory is above the heavens!
Who is like Yahweh?
Our God is seated on high.
He looks far down
On the heavens and the earth.”
This appears to be the choral response of the people. The name of Yahweh is to be blessed from now and forever. From the rising to the setting of the sun, the name of Yahweh was to be praised, all day long. Yahweh was above all countries as his glory was also above the heavens. No one was like Yahweh. He is seated on high and looks down on us in the heavens and on earth.
