1Praise, O ye servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord.
2May the name of the Lord be blessed,
from this time forth and forevermore.
3From the rising of the sun to its setting,
praised be the name of the Lord.
4High above all nations is the Lord,
above the heavens His glory.
5Who is like the Lord our God,
He that dwelleth on high,
6He that bendeth down to behold
the things in the heavens and in the earth!
7He raiseth up the poor out of the dust;
out of the dunghill He lifteth the needy,
8that He may seat him with the princes,
with the princes of His people.
9He seateth the barren in her house,
a joyous mother of children.
Alleluia.Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning, both now and ever,
and unto ages of ages. Amen.

The 113th Psalm is the Fourth Psalm at Vespers on Sunday. Together with Psalms 114–118, it forms the “Egyptian Hallel,” sung in Jewish tradition at the Passover, and was therefore likely one of the Psalms sung by our Lord with His disciples on the night in which He was betrayed (Mark 14:26).
