Praise the Lord’s Wonderful Works. Vanity of Idols.

1 1aPraise 2the Lord!

Praise the name of the Lord;

Praise Him, O bservants of the Lord,

2 You who stand in the house of the Lord,

In the acourts of the house of our God!

3 1Praise 2the Lord, for athe Lord is good;

bSing praises to His name, cfor it is lovely.

4 For 1the Lord has achosen Jacob for Himself,

Israel for His 2bown possession.

5 For I know that athe Lord is great

And that our Lord is babove all gods.

6 aWhatever the Lord pleases, He does,

In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps.

7 1He acauses the 2vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;

Who bmakes lightnings for the rain,

Who abrings forth the wind from His treasuries.

8 1He asmote the firstborn of Egypt,

2Both of man and beast.

9 1He sent asigns and wonders into your midst, O Egypt,

Upon bPharaoh and all his servants.

10 1aHe bsmote many nations

And slew mighty kings,

11 aSihon, king of the Amorites,

And bOg, king of Bashan,

And call the kingdoms of Canaan;

12 And He agave their land as a heritage,

A heritage to Israel His people.

13 Your aname, O Lord, is everlasting,

Your 1remembrance, O Lord, 2throughout all generations.

14 For the Lord will ajudge His people

And bwill have compassion on His servants.

15 The aidols of the nations are but silver and gold,

The work of man’s hands.

16 They have mouths, but they do not speak;

They have eyes, but they do not see;

17 They have ears, but they do not hear,

Nor is there any breath at all in their mouths.

18 Those who make them will be like them,

Yes, everyone who trusts in them.

19 O house of aIsrael, bless the Lord;

O house of Aaron, bless the Lord;

20 O house of Levi, bless the Lord;

You awho 1revere the Lord, bless the Lord.

21 Blessed be the Lord afrom Zion,

Who bdwells in Jerusalem.

1Praise 2the Lord!


About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
