Psalm 135

1Praise the Lord!

Praise the name of the Lord!

Offer praise, you servants of the Lord,

2who serve in the Lord’s temple,

in the courts of the temple of our God.

3Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good!

Sing praises to his name, for it is pleasant!

4Indeed, the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself,

Israel to be his special possession.

5Yes, I know the Lord is great,

and our Lord is superior to all gods.

6He does whatever he pleases

in heaven and on earth,

in the seas and all the ocean depths.

7He causes the clouds to arise from the end of the earth,

makes lightning bolts accompany the rain,

and brings the wind out of his storehouses.

8He struck down the firstborn of Egypt,

including both men and animals.

9He performed awesome deeds and acts of judgment

in your midst, O Egypt,

against Pharaoh and all his servants.

10He defeated many nations,

and killed mighty kings –

11Sihon, king of the Amorites,

and Og, king of Bashan,

and all the kingdoms of Canaan.

12He gave their land as an inheritance,

as an inheritance to Israel his people.

13O Lord, your name endures,

your reputation, O Lord, lasts.

14For the Lord vindicates his people,

and has compassion on his servants.

15The nations’ idols are made of silver and gold,

they are man-made.

16They have mouths, but cannot speak,

eyes, but cannot see,

17and ears, but cannot hear.

Indeed, they cannot breathe.

18Those who make them will end up like them,

as will everyone who trusts in them.

19O family of Israel, praise the Lord!

O family of Aaron, praise the Lord!

20O family of Levi, praise the Lord!

You loyal followers of the Lord, praise the Lord!

21The Lord deserves praise in Zion –

he who dwells in Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord!
