Chapter 113

1Hallelujah! Praise, you servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.   אהַלְלוּיָהּ | הַלְלוּ עַבְדֵי יְהֹוָה הַלְלוּ אֶת שֵׁם יְהֹוָה:
2May the name of the Lord be blessed from now and to eternity.   ביְהִי שֵׁם יְהֹוָה מְבֹרָךְ מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם:
3From the rising of the sun until its setting, the name of the Lord is praised.   גמִמִּזְרַח שֶׁמֶשׁ עַד מְבוֹאוֹ מְהֻלָּל שֵׁם יְהֹוָה:
4The Lord is high over all nations; upon the heavens is His glory.   דרָם עַל כָּל גּוֹיִם | יְהֹוָה עַל הַשָּׁמַיִם כְּבוֹדוֹ:
5Who is like the Lord, our God, Who dwells on high,   המִי כַּיהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ הַמַּגְבִּיהִי לָשָׁבֶת:
Who is like the Lord, our God: in heaven and earth, who dwells on high and lowers His eyes to see? מושיבי, להושיבי, מקימי, משפילי, מגביהי, all have a superfluous “yud.”  
6Who lowers [His eyes] to look in the heavens and the earth?   והַמַּשְׁפִּילִי לִרְאוֹת בַּשָּׁמַיִם וּבָאָרֶץ:
7He lifts the pauper up from the dust, from the dungheap He raises up the needy,   זמְקִימִי מֵעָפָר דָּל מֵאַשְׁפֹּת יָרִים אֶבְיוֹן:
8To seat [him] with princes, with the princes of His people.   חלְהוֹשִׁיבִי עִם נְדִיבִים עִם נְדִיבֵי עַמּוֹ:
9He seats the barren woman of the house as a happy mother of children. Hallelujah!   טמוֹשִׁיבִי | עֲקֶרֶת הַבַּיִת אֵם הַבָּנִים שְׂמֵחָה הַלְלוּיָהּ:
the barren woman of the house: Zion, which is like a barren womanHe will seat her.  
as a happy mother of children: (Isa. 66:8): “that Zion both experienced birth pangs and bore her children.”
