Psalm 135

1 Praise the Lord, praise the name of the Lord:
    praise him, you servants of the Lord,
2 Who stand in the house of the Lord:
    in the courts of the house of our God.
3 Praise the Lord, for the Lord is gracious:
    sing praises to his name, for it is good.
4 For the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself:
    and Israel as his own possession.
5 I know that the Lord is great:
    and that our Lord is above all gods.
6 He does whatever he wills, in heaven and upon the earth:
    in the seas and in the great depths.
7 He brings up clouds from the ends of the earth:
    he makes lightning for the rain and brings the wind out of his storehouses.
8 He struck down the firstborn of Egypt:
    both man and beast alike.
9 He sent signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt:
    against Pharaoh and against all his servants.
10 He struck down great nations:
    and slew mighty kings,
11 Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, the king of Bashan:
    and all the princes of Canaan.
12 He made over their land as a heritage:
    a heritage for Israel his people.
13 O Lord, your name shall endure for ever:
    so shall your renown, throughout all generations.
14 For the Lord will vindicate his people:
    he will take pity on his servants.
15 As for the idols of the nations, they are but silver and gold:
    the work of human hands.
16 They have mouths, but speak not:
    they have eyes, but they cannot see.
17 They have ears, yet hear nothing:
    there is no breath in their nostrils.
18 Those who make them shall be like them:
    so shall everyone that trusts in them.
19 Bless the Lord, O house of Israel:
    bless the Lord, O house of Aaron.
20 Bless the Lord, O house of Levi:
    you that fear the Lord, bless the Lord.
21 Blessed be the Lord from Zion:
    he that dwells in Jerusalem. Praise the Lord.
