From the Rising of the Sun to its Going Down, the LORD’S Name is to be Praised!

Deep Lavender Sunset with scripture

Psalm 113:1-6


Praise the LORD!

Praise, O servants of the LORD,

Praise the name of the LORD!


Blessed be the name of the LORD

From this time forth and forevermore!


From the rising of the sun to its going down

The LORD’s name is to be praised.


The LORD is high above all nations,

His glory above the heavens.

Who is like the LORD our God, Who dwells on high,

Who humbles Himself to behold

The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?

It’s interesting to discover that the Hebrew word for ‘PRAISE’, found in this passage, means shine, and also, to celebrate!

Have you ever considered that the splendor of the sun cannot possibly be hidden in a cloudless sky?

And the sensational colours of a glorious, clear sunrise, or breath-taking sunset, like this one, can in no way be masked or erased from the sky!  They shine with a beauty, intensity and brightness that delight our hearts!

In a far, far greater sense, God’s name must shine forth!

His name is to be praised!!

We—imagine such a thing—we can shine forth God’s name—we can celebrate His name—with our praise!……making known through our lives the absolute wonder of Who God is!!

Here are some verses for further consideration: Hebrews 13:15-16; Colossians 3:17; 1 Peter 4:11; John 14:21.
