Praise the ! Praise the name of the ! Praise him, you who serve the ,
you who serve in the house of the , in the courts of the house of our God.
Praise the , for the is good; celebrate his lovely name with music.
For the has chosen Jacob for himself, Israel for his own special treasure.
I know the greatness of the — that our Lord is greater than any other god.
The does whatever pleases him throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in their depths.
He causes the clouds to rise over the whole earth. He sends the lightning with the rain and releases the wind from his storehouses.
He destroyed the firstborn in each Egyptian home, both people and animals.
He performed miraculous signs and wonders in Egypt against Pharaoh and all his people.
He struck down great nations and slaughtered mighty kings—
Sihon king of the Amorites, Og king of Bashan, and all the kings of Canaan.
He gave their land as an inheritance, a special possession to his people Israel.
Your name, O , endures forever; your fame, O , is known to every generation.
For the will give justice to his people and have compassion on his servants.
The idols of the nations are merely things of silver and gold, shaped by human hands.
They have mouths but cannot speak, and eyes but cannot see.
They have ears but cannot hear, and mouths but cannot breathe.
And those who make idols are just like them, as are all who trust in them.
O Israel, praise the ! O priests—descendants of Aaron—praise the !
O Levites, praise the ! All you who fear the , praise the !
The be praised from Zion, for he lives here in Jerusalem. Praise the !
