- Psalm 148 is recited in its entirety in Pesukei Dezimra, the initial section of the daily morning prayer service.
- Verses 1-6 are recited at the opening to Kiddush Levana.
- Verses 13-14 are recited by the congregation when the Torah scroll is being returned to the ark.
It is one of the Laudate psalms and was sung as part of a trio of psalms during Lauds in the Roman rite. Around 530, St. Benedict of Nursia chose this psalm, along with Psalms 149 and 150, for the office of morning celebrated daily. That's why this celebration is called Lauds.
In the Liturgy of the Hours also present, Psalm 148 is recited for Sunday Lauds in the third week.
