1Praise ye the LORD.Praise ye the name of the LORD;praise him, O ye servants of the LORD.2
Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God,3Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.4
For the LORD hath chosenJacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.5
For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.6
Whatsoever the LORDpleased , that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.7
He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he makethlightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.
