Then the Levites, Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah, said, “Stand up and bless the Lord your God from everlasting to everlasting. Blessed be your glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise.” (Nehemiah 9:5, ESV)

The Zondervan NIV Study Bible says here:

Yahweh, the covenant God who is committed to his people by promises that he cannot and will not break. He is the Creator of all things visible and invisible and the author of all life above and below. This evokes the basic conviction at the heart of Israel’s faith (Ps 121:2). His name emphasizes his splendor and his power.

Indeed!
