Give praise, you servants of Yahweh # Ps 113:1; 134:1
2who stand in the house of Yahweh,
in the courts of the house of our God. # Ps 92:13; 116:19

5For I know that Yahweh is great;
our Lord is greater than all gods. # Ps 95:3; 97:9

in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and all the depths. # Ps 115:3; Is 45:7; Lm 3:37-38; Dn 4:35
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. # Jb 28:25-26; Jr 10:13; 51:16

13Yahweh, Your name endures forever,
Your reputation, Yahweh,
through all generations. # Ex 3:15; Ps 102:12

made by human hands. # 2Kg 19:18; Is 37:19

eyes, but cannot see.
17They have ears but cannot hear;
indeed, there is no breath in their mouths. # Is 46:7
