He struck down many1 nations and killed mighty kings--
Sihon2 king of the Amorites,3 Og king of Bashan4 and all the kings of Canaan5--
and he gave their land as an inheritance,6 an inheritance to his people Israel.
Your name, O LORD, endures forever,7 your renown,8 O LORD, through all generations.
For the LORD will vindicate his people9 and have compassion on his servants.1015
The idols of the nations11 are silver and gold, made by the hands of men.1216
They have mouths, but cannot speak,13 eyes, but they cannot see;
they have ears, but cannot hear, nor is there breath14 in their mouths.
Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.
O house of Israel, praise the LORD;15 O house of Aaron, praise the LORD;
O house of Levi, praise the LORD; you who fear him, praise the LORD.
