Praise the LORD.a Praise the name of the LORD; praise him, you servants1 of the LORD,
you who minister in the house2 of the LORD, in the courts3 of the house of our God.
Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good;4 sing praise to his name,5 for that is pleasant.64
For the LORD has chosen Jacob7 to be his own, Israel to be his treasured possession.85
I know that the LORD is great,9 that our Lord is greater than all gods.106
The LORD does whatever pleases him,11 in the heavens and on the earth,12 in the seas and all their depths.
He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth; he sends lightning with the rain13 and brings out the wind14 from his storehouses.15
