Psalm 135
Praise the LORD!
Praise the Name of the LORD, *
praise him, O you servants of the LORD,
You 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, for it is lovely!
For the LORD has chosen Jacob for himself, *
and Israel as his treasured possession.
 
For I know that the LORD is great, *
and that our Lord is above all gods.
Whatever the LORD pleases, he does, *
in heaven and on the earth,
in the seas and all the depths.
It is he who makes the clouds to ascend from the ends of the earth, *
who sends out lightning for the rain
and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.
It was he who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, *
firstborn both of man and beast;
He who in your midst, O Egypt, sent signs and wonders *
against Pharaoh and all his servants;
He who struck down many nations *
and put mighty kings to death,
Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, the king of Bashan, *
and all the kingdoms of Canaan,
And he gave their land as a heritage, *
a heritage to Israel his people.
Your Name, O LORD, endures forever, *
your renown, O LORD, throughout all generations.
For the LORD will vindicate his people *
and he will have compassion on his servants.
The idols of the nations are silver and gold, *
the work of human hands.
They have mouths, but they do not speak; *
they have eyes, but they do not see;
They have ears, but they do not hear, *
nor is there any breath in their mouths.
Those who make them will become like them, *
yes, so will all who trust in them.
 
O house of Israel, bless the LORD! *
O house of Aaron, bless the LORD!
O house of Levi, bless the LORD! *
You who fear the LORD, bless the LORD!
Blessed be the LORD from Zion, who dwells in Jerusalem! *
Praise the LORD!
