Your Name, O Lord, Endures Forever1 a Praise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord,
give praise, O b servants of the Lord,
2who c stand in the house of the Lord,
in d the courts of the house of our God!
3Praise the Lord, for e the Lord is good;
sing to his name f for it is pleasant! ▼
▼Or for he is beautiful
4For the Lord has h chosen Jacob for himself,
Israel as his i own possession.
5 For I know that j the Lord is great,
and that our Lord is above all gods.
6 k Whatever the Lord pleases, he does,
in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and all deeps.
7 l He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth,
who m makes lightnings for the rain
and brings forth the wind from his n storehouses.
8 He it was who o struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
both of man and of beast;
9who in your midst, O Egypt,
sent p signs and wonders
against Pharaoh and all his servants;
10 q who struck down many nations
and killed mighty kings,
11 r Sihon, king of the Amorites,
and s Og, king of Bashan,
and t all the kingdoms of Canaan,
12and u gave their land as a heritage,
a heritage to his people Israel.
13 v Your name, O Lord, endures forever,
w your renown, ▼
▼Or remembranceO Lord, throughout all ages.
14 y For the Lord will vindicate his people
and z have compassion on his servants.
15 aa The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
the work of human hands.
16They have mouths, but do not speak;
they have eyes, but do not see;
17they have ears, but do not hear,
nor is there any breath in their mouths.
18Those who make them become like them,
so do all who trust in them.
19 ab O house of Israel, bless the Lord!
O house of Aaron, bless the Lord!
20O house of Levi, bless the Lord!
You who fear the Lord, bless the Lord!
21Blessed be the Lord ac from Zion,
he who ad dwells in Jerusalem!
ae Praise the Lord!
