1Praise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord;
#(1 Tim. 2:8)Praise Him, O you servants of the Lord!
2#Ps. 113:1You who stand in the house of the Lord,
In #Luke 2:37the courts of the house of our God,
3Praise the Lord, for #Ps. 116:19the Lord is good;
Sing praises to His name, #(Ps. 119:68)for it is pleasant.
4For #Ps. 147:1the Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself,
Israel for His special treasure.
5For I know that #(Ex. 19:5); Mal. 3:17; (Titus 2:14; 1 Pet. 2:9)the Lord is great,
And our Lord is above all gods.
6#Ps. 95:3; 97:9Whatever the Lord pleases He does,
In heaven and in earth,
In the seas and in all deep places.
7#Ps. 115:3He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
#Jer. 10:13He makes lightning for the rain;
He brings the wind out of His #Job 28:25, 26; 38:24–28treasuries.
8#Jer. 51:16He destroyed the firstborn of Egypt,
Both of man and beast.
9#Ex. 12:12; Ps. 78:51He sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt,
#Ex. 7:10; Deut. 6:22; Ps. 78:43Upon Pharaoh and all his servants.
10#Ps. 136:15He defeated many nations
And slew mighty kings—
11Sihon king of the Amorites,
Og king of Bashan,
And #Num. 21:24; Ps. 136:17all the kingdoms of Canaan—
12#Josh. 12:7–24And gave their land as a heritage,
A heritage to Israel His people.
13#Ps. 78:55; 136:21, 22Your name, O Lord, endures forever,
Your fame, O Lord, throughout all generations.
14#(Ex. 3:15; Ps. 102:12)For the Lord will judge His people,
And He will have compassion on His servants.
15#Deut. 32:36The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
The work of men’s hands.
16They have mouths, but they do not speak;
Eyes they have, but they do not see;
17They have ears, but they do not hear;
Nor is there any breath in their mouths.
18Those who make them are like them;
So is everyone who trusts in them.
19#(Ps. 115:4–8)Bless the Lord, O house of Israel!
Bless the Lord, O house of Aaron!
20Bless the Lord, O house of Levi!
You who fear the Lord, bless the Lord!
21Blessed be the Lord #(Ps. 115:9)out of Zion,
Who dwells in Jerusalem!
Praise the Lord!
