Psalm 135

87.87 D

1Praise the Lord! O praise the Lord’s name; praise Him, servants of the Lord
2You who serve within the Lord’s house; in the courts of God the Lord.
3Praise the Lord, for that is pleasant; sing praise to His name alone.
4For the Lord has chosen Jacob; Is-ra-el to be His own.

5I know that the Lord is great—that He is greater than all gods;
6And the Lord does what He pleases, in the heav’ns, on earth abroad.
7He works in the depths of seas, and from earth’s end He makes the clouds;
Sends the lightning with the rain, and brings wind out of His storehouse.

8He struck down all Egypt’s firstborn, of both animals and men.
9He sent signs in your midst, Egypt, against Pharaoh and his men.
10He struck down the many nations; killed great kings of Canaan’s land—
11Sihon, king of Amorites, and Og the king of great Bashan.

12He gave all their land to Isr’el, an inheritance for them.
13Your name, Lord, endures forever; Your fame’s told each age again.
14God will vindicate His people; have compassion upon them.
15All the nations’ idols are but gold and silver, made by men.

16They have mouths, but cannot speak; and they have eyes, but cannot see;
17They have ears, but cannot hear; though they have mouths, they cannot breathe.
18Those who make them will be like them, so will all who trust in them.
19Praise the Lord, O house of Isr’el—praise the Lord, house of Aaron.

20Praise the Lord, O house of Levi—praise the Lord, and Him revere.
Praise the Lord, all you who fear Him; bless the Lord who brings you near.
21Praise be to the Lord from Zion, to the Lord who does there dwell;
The Lord who dwells in Jerus’lem. Praise the Lord, all Israel!
