1a1Praisebthe LORD ! Praise the name of the LORD ; Praise Him, O 2servants of the LORD,
You whostand in the house of the LORD, In the 3courts of the house of our God !
3cPraisedthe LORD, for 4the LORD is good ; 5Singpraises to His name, 6for it is lovely.
For ethe LORD has 7chosenJacob for Himself, Israel for His f8own possession.
For I know that 9the LORD is great And that our Lord is 10aboveallgods.
611Whatever the LORDpleases, He does, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in alldeeps.
7gHe 12causes the hvapors to ascend from the ends of the earth ; Who 13makeslightnings for the rain, Who 14bringsforth the wind from His treasuries.
8iHe 15smote the firstborn of Egypt, jBoth of man and beast.
9kHe sent16signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt, Upon 17Pharaoh and all his servants.
10l18He 19smotemanynations And slewmightykings,
1120Sihon, king of the Amorites, And 21Og, king of Bashan, And 22all the kingdoms of Canaan ;
And He 23gave their land as a heritage, A heritage to Israel His people.
Your 24name, O LORD, is everlasting, Your mremembrance, O LORD, nthroughout allgenerations.
For the LORD will 25judge His people And 26will havecompassion on His servants.
The 27idols of the nations are but silver and gold, The work of man'shands.
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 thereanybreath at all in their mouths.
Those who make them will be like them, Yes, everyonewhotrusts in them.
O house of 28Israel, bless the LORD ; O house of Aaron, bless the LORD ;
O house of Levi, bless the LORD ; You 29who orevere the LORD, bless the LORD.
21Blessed be the LORD30from Zion, Who 31dwells in Jerusalem. pPraiseqthe LORD !
