Your Name, O Lord, Endures Forever1 aPraise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord,
give praise, O bservants of the Lord,
2who cstand in the house of the Lord,
in dthe courts of the house of our God!
3Praise the Lord, for ethe Lord is good;
sing to his name ffor it is pleasant! ▼
▼Or for he is beautiful
4For the Lord has hchosen Jacob for himself,
Israel as his iown possession.
5 For I know that jthe Lord is great,
and that our Lord is above all gods.
6 kWhatever the Lord pleases, he does,
in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and all deeps.
7 lHe it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth,
who mmakes lightnings for the rain
and brings forth the wind from his nstorehouses.
8 He it was who ostruck down the firstborn of Egypt,
both of man and of beast;
9who in your midst, O Egypt,
sent psigns and wonders
against Pharaoh and all his servants;
10 qwho struck down many nations
and killed mighty kings,
11 rSihon, king of the Amorites,
and sOg, king of Bashan,
and tall the kingdoms of Canaan,
12and ugave their land as a heritage,
a heritage to his people Israel.
13 vYour name, O Lord, endures forever,
wyour renown, ▼
▼Or remembranceO Lord, throughout all ages.
14 yFor the Lord will vindicate his people
and zhave compassion on his servants.
15 aaThe 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 abO 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 acfrom Zion,
he who addwells in Jerusalem!
aePraise the Lord!
