More psalms: Psalm 111–114

Many of the psalms have no author attributed to them, so we have a large group of ‘unallocated’ psalms that have no identified author.

Psalm 113 tells the promises of God to the poor. It’s not something we always see on earth. The promise is sometimes delivered later: it’s one of the reasons Jesus came,as He explained in the Sermon on the Mount:

Matthew 5:3-5 God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
God blesses those who mourn,for they will be comforted.
God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth.

Psalm 113

Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord;
praise the name of the Lord.

2 Blessed be the name of the Lord
from this time on and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to its setting
the name of the Lord is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations,
and his glory above the heavens.

5 Who is like the Lord our God,
who is seated on high,
who looks far down
on the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust,
and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
to make them sit with princes,
with the princes of his people.
He gives the barren woman a home,
making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the Lord!
