1Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the name of the Lord; praise him, O ye servants of the Lord: 2Ye that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God. 3Praise ye the Lord; for the Lord is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant. 4For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure. 5For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. 6Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that hath he done, in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps. 7He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth forth the wind out of his treasuries. 8Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast. 9He sent signs and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants. 10Who smote many nations, and slew mighty kings; 11Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan: 12And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people. 13Thy name, O Lord, endureth for ever; thy memorial, O Lord, throughout all generations. 14For the Lord shall judge his people, and repent himself concerning his servants. 15The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. 16They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; 17They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths. 18They that make them shall be like unto them; yea, every one that trusteth in them. 19O house of Israel, bless ye the Lord: O house of Aaron, bless ye the Lord: 20O house of Levi, bless ye the Lord: ye that fear the Lord, bless ye the Lord. 21Blessed be the Lord out of Zion, who dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord.
