Rashi's Commentary:

Chapter 113

1. Hallelujah! Praise, you servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.   א. הַלְלוּיָהּ | הַלְלוּ עַבְדֵי יְהֹוָה הַלְלוּ אֶת שֵׁם יְהֹוָה:
2. May the name of the Lord be blessed from now and to eternity.   ב. יְהִי שֵׁם יְהֹוָה מְבֹרָךְ מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם:
3. From the rising of the sun until its setting, the name of the Lord is praised.   ג. מִמִּזְרַח שֶׁמֶשׁ עַד מְבוֹאוֹ מְהֻלָּל שֵׁם יְהֹוָה:
4. The Lord is high over all nations; upon the heavens is His glory.   ד. רָם עַל כָּל גּוֹיִם | יְהֹוָה עַל הַשָּׁמַיִם כְּבוֹדוֹ:
5. Who is like the Lord, our God, Who dwells on high,   ה. מִי 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.”  
6. Who lowers [His eyes] to look in the heavens and the earth?   ו. הַמַּשְׁפִּילִי לִרְאוֹת בַּשָּׁמַיִם וּבָאָרֶץ:
7. He lifts the pauper up from the dust, from the dungheap He raises up the needy,   ז. מְקִימִי מֵעָפָר דָּל מֵאַשְׁפֹּת יָרִים אֶבְיוֹן:
8. To seat [him] with princes, with the princes of His people.   ח. לְהוֹשִׁיבִי עִם נְדִיבִים עִם נְדִיבֵי עַמּוֹ:
9. He seats the barren woman of the house as a happy mother of children. Hallelujah!   ט. מוֹשִׁיבִי | 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.”
