Psalms 135

Psalm 135

Praise the name of the  Lord.
Praise the  Lord, you his servants,
who stand in the house of the  Lord,
in the courts of the house of our God.
Praise the  Lord, for the  Lord is good:
‘Sing praise to his name it is pleasant.
The  Lord for himself chose Jacob,
Israel as his own special treasure.

For I know that the  Lord is great,
that our  Lord is above all gods.
All that he wills he does
in the heavens and on the earth,
in the seas and in all the abysses.
Clouds he brings up from the ends of the earth,
lightnings he makes for the rain,
wind he brings out of his storehouses.

The first-born of Egypt he struck,
both humans and animals.
Signs and wonders he sent
into your midst, O Egypt,
upon Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 Many nations he struck,
mighty kings he slew
11 Sihon, king of the Amorites,
Og, king of Bashan,
and all the kingdoms of Canaan.
12 He gave their land for possession,
possession to Israel his people.

13 Your name, O  Lord, is forever;
your memorial world without end.
14 For the  Lord secures right for his people,
and takes pity upon his servants.

15 The idols of heathen are silver
made by human hands.
16 They have mouths, but cannot speak:
they have eyes, but cannot see.
17 They have ears, but cannot hear:
there is no breath in their mouths.
18 Their makers become like them,
so do all who trust in them.

19 House of Israel, bless the  Lord:
house of Araon, bless the  Lord.
20 House of Levi, bless the  Lord:
you who fear the  Lord, bless the  Lord.
21 Blest be the  Lord out of Zion,
who lives in Jerusalem.
