Praising God for His Graciousness


Praise the name of the LORD!

Give praise, you servants of the LORD,

2you who are standing in the LORD’s Temple,

in the courtyards of the house of our God.

3Praise the LORD,

because the LORD is good;

Sing to his name,

for he is gracious.

4It is Jacob whom the LORD chose for himself—

Israel as his personal possession.

5Indeed, I know that the LORD is great,

and that our Lorda surpasses all gods.

6The LORD does whatever pleases him

in heaven and on earth,

in the seas and all itsb deep regions.

7He makes the clouds rise from the ends of the earth,

fashioning lightning for the rain,

bringing the wind from his storehouses.

8It was the LORDc who struck down the firstborn of Egypt,

including both men and animals.

9He sent signs and wonders among you, Egypt,

befored Pharaoh and all his servants.

10He struck down many nations,

killing many kings—

11Sihon, king of the Amorites,

Og, king of Bashan,

and every kingdom of Canaan—

12and he gave their land as an inheritance,

an inheritance to his people Israel.

13Your name, LORD, exists forever,

and your reputation, LORD, throughout the ages.

14For the LORD will vindicate his people,

and he will show compassion on his servants.

15The idols of the nations are silver and gold,

worked bye the hands of human beings.

16Mouths are attributed to them,

but they cannot speak;

sight is attributed to them,

but they cannot see;

17ears are attributed to them,

but they do not hear,

and there is no breath in their mouths.

18Those who craft them—

and allf who trust in them—

will become like them.

19House of Israel, bless the LORD!

House of Aaron, bless the LORD!

20House of Levi, bless the LORD!

You who fear the LORD, bless the LORD!

21Blessed be the LORD from Zion,

he who lives in Jerusalem.
