Psalm 150:1 Praise the Lord.[a]
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
2 Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.

a. Psalm 150:1 Hebrew Hallelu Yah; also in verse 6

This is from

Psalm 150 contains no argument, no real teaching, no real explanation. It is an eloquent, passionate cry to all creation to give Yahweh the praise due to Him.
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD: This is a remarkably fitting conclusion to this Psalm and to the entire Book of Psalms. Everything that breathes should give its praise to the One who gave it breath. Every breath is the gift of God and praise is the worthy return we make for that gift.​

Well.... Psalms is done... all those poems have been read.... another book complete..... and I agree with the commentary.... "Let everything that has breath praise the Lord"..... and someday.... they will.....
