Praise the LORD!
Praise the name of the LORD;
a Praise Him, O you servants of the LORD! 2 b You who stand in the house of the LORD,
In c the courts of the house of our God, 3 Praise the LORD, for d the LORD is good;
Sing praises to His name, e for it is pleasant. 4 For f the LORD has chosen Jacob for Himself,
Israel for His 1 special treasure.
For I know that g the LORD is great,
And our Lord is above all gods. 6 h Whatever the LORD pleases He does,
In heaven and in earth,
In the seas and in all deep places. 7 i He causes the 2 vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
j He makes lightning for the rain;
He brings the wind out of His k treasuries.
l He 3 destroyed the firstborn of Egypt,
4 Both of man and beast. 9 m He sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt,
n Upon Pharaoh and all his servants. 10 o He defeated many nations
And slew mighty kings - 11 Sihon king of the Amorites,
Og king of Bashan,
And p all the kingdoms of Canaan - 12 q And gave their land as a 5 heritage,
A heritage to Israel His people.
r Your name, O LORD, endures forever,
Your fame, O LORD, throughout all generations. 14 s For the LORD will judge His people,
And He will have compassion on His servants.
t The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
The work of men's hands. 16 They have mouths, but they do not speak;
Eyes they have, but they do not see; 17 They have ears, but they do not hear;
Nor is there any breath in their mouths. 18 Those who make them are like them;
So is everyone who trusts in them.
u Bless the LORD, O house of Israel!
Bless the LORD, O house of Aaron! 20 Bless the LORD, O house of Levi!
You who fear the LORD, bless the LORD! 21 Blessed be the LORD v out of Zion,
Who dwells in Jerusalem!
Praise the LORD!
