Psalm 135–136

Psalm 135

135:15–20pp—Ps 115:4–11

Praise the Lord.a

Praise the name of the Lord;

praise him, you servantsv of the Lord,

you who minister in the housew of the Lord,

in the courtsx of the house of our God.

Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;y

sing praise to his name,z for that is pleasant.a

For the Lord has chosen Jacobb to be his own,

Israel to be his treasured possession.c

I know that the Lord is great,d

that our Lord is greater than all gods.e

The Lord does whatever pleases him,f

in the heavens and on the earth,g

in the seas and all their depths.

He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth;

he sends lightning with the rainh

and brings out the windi from his storehouses.j

He struck down the firstbornk of Egypt,

the firstborn of people and animals.

He sent his signsl and wonders into your midst, Egypt,

against Pharaoh and all his servants.m

10 He struck down manyn nations

and killed mighty kings—

11 Sihono king of the Amorites,p

Og king of Bashan,q

and all the kings of Canaanr

12 and he gave their land as an inheritance,s

an inheritance to his people Israel.

13 Your name, Lord, endures forever,t

your renown,u Lord, through all generations.

14 For the Lord will vindicate his peoplev

and have compassion on his servants.w

15 The idols of the nationsx are silver and gold,

made by human hands.y

16 They have mouths, but cannot speak,z

eyes, but cannot see.

17 They have ears, but cannot hear,

nor is there breatha in their mouths.

18 Those who make them will be like them,

and so will all who trust in them.

19 All you Israelites, praise the Lord;b

house of Aaron, praise the Lord;

20 house of Levi, praise the Lord;

you who fear him, praise the Lord.

21 Praise be to the Lord from Zion,c

to him who dwells in Jerusalem.d

Praise the Lord.
