Psalms 136:1 (King James Version)
O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
- This Psalm is little else than a repetition of the preceding, with the addition of the burden, "for his mercy endureth for ever," at the end of each verse; and it was doubtless composed on the same occasion. It seems evidently to have been a responsive song; the first part of the verse being probably sung by the Levites, and the burden by the people.
