Psalm 135
Holman Christian Standard Bible  Par ▾ 

Yahweh Is Great


Praise the name of Yahweh.

Give praise, you servants of Yahweha

2who stand in the house of Yahweh,

in the courts of the house of our God.b

3Praise Yahweh, for Yahweh is good;

sing praise to His name, for it is delightful.c

4For Yahweh has chosen Jacob for Himself,

Israel as His treasured possession.d

5For I know that Yahweh is great;

our Lord is greater than all gods.e

6Yahweh does whatever He pleases

in heaven and on earth,

in the seas and all the depths.f

7He causes the clouds to rise from the ends of the earth.

He makes lightning for the rain

and brings the wind from His storehouses.g

8He struck down the firstborn of Egypt,

both man and beast.h

9He sent signs and wonders against you, Egypt,

against Pharaoh and all his officials.i

10He struck down many nations

and slaughtered mighty kings:j

11Sihon king of the Amorites,

Og king of Bashan,

and all the kings of Canaan.k

12He gave their land as an inheritance,

an inheritance to His people Israel.l

13Yahweh, Your name endures forever,

Your reputation, Yahweh,

through all generations.m

14For Yahweh will vindicate His people

and have compassion on His servants.n

15The idols of the nations are of silver and gold,

made by human hands.o

16They have mouths but cannot speak,p

eyes, but cannot see.

17They have ears but cannot hear;

indeed, there is no breath in their mouths.q

18Those who make them are just like them,

as are all who trust in them.r

19House of Israel, praise Yahweh!s

House of Aaron, praise Yahweh!t

20House of Levi, praise Yahweh!

You who revere the LORD, praise the LORD!u

21May the LORD be praised from Zion;v

He dwells in Jerusalem.w
