Praise ye the LORD, praise ye the name of the LORD! Praise Him, O ye servants of the LORD!
Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God,
praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; sing praises unto His name, for it is pleasant.
For the LORD hath chosen Jacob for Himself, and Israel for His peculiar treasure.
For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.
Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did He in heaven and on earth, in the seas and in all deep places.
He causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He maketh lightnings for the rain; He bringeth the wind out of His treasuries.
