Psalm 135

Praise to God for His Power and Redemption

1 Praise Yah! Praise the name of Yahweh. Praise [him], O servants of Yahweh,
2 who stand in the house of Yahweh, in the courts of the house of our God.
3 Praise Yah, for Yahweh [is] good. Sing praises concerning his name, for [it is] pleasant.
4 For Yah has chosen Jacob for himself, Israel as his special possession.
5 For I know that Yahweh [is] great, and our Lord [is greater] than all gods.
6 All that Yahweh desires, he does, in heaven and on earth, in the seas and all [the] depths.
7 [He] causes clouds to rise from the edge of the earth; he makes lightnings for the rain; [he] brings out [the] wind from his storehouses.
8 Who struck the firstborn of Egypt, both of humans and animals.
9 He sent signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt, against Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 Who struck many nations and killed mighty kings--
11 Sihon the king of the Amorites, and Og the king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan--
12 and he gave their land as an inheritance, an inheritance for his people Israel.
13 O Yahweh, your name [endures] forever, your {renown} {throughout all generations},
14 for Yahweh will plead [the] cause [of] his people and will have compassion on his servants.
15 The idols of the nations [are] silver and gold, [the] work of the hands of humankind.
16 They have mouths, but cannot speak; they have eyes, but cannot see;
17 they have ears, but cannot hear; there is not even breath in their mouths.
18 [Those who] make them become like them, [as does] everyone who trusts in them.
19 O house of Israel, bless Yahweh. O house of Aaron, bless Yahweh.
20 O house of Levi, bless Yahweh. [You who] fear Yahweh, bless Yahweh.
21 Blessed [be] Yahweh from Zion, who dwells [in] Jerusalem. Praise Yah!
