Week 50 (Book 5): Reviewing the Fourth Week of Elul - Psalms 148-150; 137:7-9; 89:51

Psalms

Chapter 148

1. Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise Him in the celestial heights. 2. Praise Him, all His angels; praise Him, all His hosts. 3. Praise Him, sun and moon; praise Him, all the shining stars. 4. Praise Him, hea-ven of heavens, and the waters that are above the heavens. 5. Let them praise the Name of the Lord, for He comman-ded and they were created. 6. He has established them forever, for all time; He issued a decree, and it shall not be transgressed. 7. Praise the Lord from the earth, sea-monsters and all [that dwell in] the depths; 8. fire and hail, snow and vapor, stormy wind carrying out His command; 9. the mountains and all hills, fruit-bearing trees and all cedars; 10. the beasts and all cattle, creeping things and winged fowl; 11. kings of the earth and all nations, rulers and all judges of the land; 12. young men as well as maidens, elders with young lads. 13. Let them praise the Name of the Lord, for His Name is sublime, to Himself; its radiance [alone] is upon earth and heaven. 14. He shall raise the glory of His people, [increase] the praise of all His pious ones, the Children of Israel, the people close to Him. Praise the Lord!

Chapter 149

1. Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, [recount] His praise in the assembly of the pious. 2. Israel will rejoice in its Maker; the children of Zion will delight in their King. 3. They will praise His Name with dancing; they will sing to Him with the drum and harp. 4. For the Lord desires His people; He will adorn the humble with salvation. 5. The pious will exult in glory; they will sing upon their beds. 6. The exaltation of G-d is in their throat, and a double-edged sword in their hand, 7. to bring retribution upon the nations, punishment upon the peoples; 8. to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with iron fetters; 9. to execute upon them the prescribed judgment; it shall be a glory for all His pious ones. Praise the Lord!

Chapter 150

1. Praise the Lord! Praise G-d in His holiness; praise Him in the firmament of His strength. 2. Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to His abundant greatness. 3. Praise Him with the call of the shofar; praise Him with harp and lyre. 4. Praise Him with timbrel and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and flute. 5. Praise Him with resounding cymbals; praise Him with clanging cymbals. 6. Let every soul praise the Lord. Praise the Lord! 


Tikkun HaKlali

Chapter 137

7. Remember, O Lord, for the sons of Edom, the day of Jerusalem, those who say, "Raze it, raze it, down to its foundation!"
8. O Daughter of Babylon, who is destined to be plundered, praiseworthy is he who repays you your recompense that you have done to us.
9. Praiseworthy is he who will take and dash your infants against the rock.


Psalm 89


51. Remember, O Lord, the disgrace of Your servants, which I bear in my bosom, [the disgrace] of all great nations.
