Psalms 135

1Praise Yah!
Praise the name of the  Lord!
Praise him, you servants of the  Lord,
2you who stand in the house of the  Lord,
in the courts of our God's house.
3Praise Yah, for the  Lord is good.
Sing praises to his name, for that is pleasant.
4For Yah has chosen Jacob for himself;
Israel for his own possession.
5For I know that the  Lord is great,
that our Lord is above all gods.
6Whatever the  Lord pleased, that he has done,
in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps;
7who causes the clouds to rise from the ends of the earth;
who makes lightnings with the rain;
who brings forth the wind out of his treasuries;
8Who struck the firstborn of Egypt,
both of man and animal;
9Who sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, Egypt,
on Pharaoh, and on all his servants;
10who struck many nations,
and killed mighty kings,
11Sihon king of the Amorites,
Og king of Bashan,
and all the kingdoms of Canaan,
12and gave their land for a heritage,
a heritage to Israel, his people.
13Your name,  Lord, endures forever;
your renown,  Lord, throughout all generations.
14For the  Lord will judge his people,
and have compassion on his servants.
15The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
the work of men's hands.
16They have mouths, but they can't speak.
They have eyes, but they can't see.
17They have ears, but they can't hear;
neither is there any breath in their mouths.
18Those who make them will be like them;
yes, everyone who trusts in them.
19House of Israel, praise the  Lord!
House of Aaron, praise the  Lord!
20House of Levi, praise the  Lord!
You who fear the  Lord, praise the  Lord!
21Blessed be the  Lord from Zion,
Who dwells at Jerusalem.
Praise Yah!
