|Psalms 135 |
1 Praise the LORD. Praise the name of the LORD; praise him, O you servants of the LORD.
2 You who stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God,
3 Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good. Sing praises to his name, for it is pleasant.
4 For the LORD has chosen Jacob to himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.
5 For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.
6 Whatever pleased the LORD, that he did in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.
7 He causes the vapors to arise from the ends of the earth; he causes lightnings for the rain; he brings the wind out of his treasuries.
8 Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast.
9 Who sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt; upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.
10 Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings;
11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan.
12 And gave their land for a heritage, a heritage to Israel his people.
13 Your name, O LORD, endures forever; and your memorial, O LORD, endures throughout all generations.
14 For the LORD will judge his people, and he will restrain his anger concerning his servants.
15 The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
16 They have mouths, but they do not speak; they have eyes, but they see not;
17 They have ears, but they do not hear; neither is there any breath in their mouths.
18 They who make them are likened to them; so is everyone who trusts in them.
19 Bless the LORD, O house of Israel; bless the LORD, O house of Aaron.
20 Bless the LORD, O house of Levi; you who fear the LORD, bless the LORD.
21 Blessed is the LORD out of Zion, who dwells at Jerusalem. Praise the LORD.
