Your Name, O Lord, Endures Forever
1 # See Ps. 104:35 Praise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord,
give praise, O #See Ps. 113:1servants of the Lord,
2who #[See Ps. 134:1 above] stand in the house of the Lord,
in #Ps. 92:13the courts of the house of our God!
3Praise the Lord, for #See Ps. 100:5 the Lord is good;
sing to his name, #Ps. 147:1; [Ps. 52:9]for it is pleasant!#135:3 Or for he is beautiful
4For the Lord has #Deut. 7:6, 7; 10:15; See Ps. 105:6 chosen Jacob for himself,
Israel as his #Ex. 19:5own possession.
5For I know that #Ps. 95:3the Lord is great,
and that our Lord is above all gods.
Whatever the Lord pleases, he does,
in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and all deeps.
Jer. 10:13; 51:16 He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth,
who #[Job 28:25, 26; 38:25; Zech. 10:1] makes lightnings for the rain
and brings forth the wind from his #Job 38:22storehouses.
8He it was who #See Ps. 78:51struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
both of man and of beast;
9who in your midst, O Egypt,
sent #Deut. 6:22signs and wonders
against Pharaoh and all his servants;
10 # For ver. 10-12, see Ps. 136:17-22 who struck down many nations
and killed mighty kings,
Deut. 29:7; See Num. 21:21-26 Sihon, king of the Amorites,
and #See Num. 21:33-35 Og, king of Bashan,
and #See Josh. 12:7-24all the kingdoms of Canaan,
12and #Deut. 29:8; See Ps. 78:55gave their land as a heritage,
a heritage to his people Israel.
Ex. 3:15 Your name, O Lord, endures forever,
your renown,#135:13 Or remembrance O Lord, throughout all ages.
Deut. 32:36 For the Lord will vindicate his people
and #See Ps. 90:13have compassion on his servants.
15 # For ver. 15-18, see Ps. 115:4-8 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
the work of human hands.
16They have mouths, but do not speak;
they have eyes, but do not see;
17they have ears, but do not hear,
nor is there any breath in their mouths.
18Those who make them become like them,
so do all who trust in them.
19 # See Ps. 115:9 O house of Israel, bless the Lord!
O house of Aaron, bless the Lord!
20O house of Levi, bless the Lord!
You who fear the Lord, bless the Lord!
21Blessed be the Lord #Ps. 128:5 from Zion,
he who #Ps. 132:13, 14 dwells in Jerusalem!
# ver. 1 Praise the Lord!
