1Praise the Lord!

Praise the name of the Lord,

give praise, O servants of the Lord,

2you that stand in the house of the Lord,

in the courts of the house of our God!

3Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;

sing to his name, for he is gracious!

4For the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself,

Israel as his own possession.

5For I know that the Lord is great,

and that our Lord is above all gods.

6Whatever the Lord pleases he does,

in heaven and on earth,

in the seas and all deeps.

7He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth,

who makes lightnings for the rain

and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.

8He it was who smote the first-born of Egypt,

both of man and of beast;

9who in thy midst, O Egypt,

sent signs and wonders

against Pharaoh and 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 as a heritage,

a heritage to his people Israel.

13Thy name, O Lord, endures for ever,

thy renown, O Lord, throughout all ages.

14For the Lord will vindicate his people,

and have compassion on his servants.

15The idols of the nations are silver and gold,

the work of men’s hands.

16They have mouths, but they speak not,

they have eyes, but they see not,

17they have ears, but they hear not,

nor is there any breath in their mouths.

18Like them be those who make them!—

yea, every one who trusts in them!

19O house of Israel, bless the Lord!

O house of Aaron, bless the Lord!

20O house of Levi, bless the Lord!

You that fear the Lord, bless the Lord!

21Blessed be the Lord from Zion,

he who dwells in Jerusalem!

Praise the Lord!
