Your Name Endures Forever
(2 Chronicles 7:1-3; Psalm 136:1-26)
1Hallelujah! Praise the name of Jehovah; praise, ye servants of Jehovah,
2Ye that stand in the house of Jehovah, in the courts of the house of our God.
3Praise ye Jah; for Jehovah is good: sing psalms unto his name; for it is pleasant.
4For Jah hath chosen Jacob unto himself, Israel for his own possession.
5For I know that Jehovah is great, and our Lord is above all gods.
6Whatsoever Jehovah pleased, he hath done in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all deeps;
7Who causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; who maketh lightnings for the rain; who bringeth the wind out of his treasuries:
8Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast;
9Who sent signs and miracles into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh and upon all his servants;
10Who smote great 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 inheritance, an inheritance unto Israel his people.
13Thy name, O Jehovah, is for ever; thy memorial, O Jehovah, from generation to generation.
14For Jehovah will judge his people, and will repent in favour of his servants.
15The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of men's hands:
16They have a mouth, and they speak not; eyes have they, and they see not;
17They have ears, and they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouth.
18They that make them are like unto them, every one that confideth in them.
19House of Israel, bless ye Jehovah; house of Aaron, bless ye Jehovah;
20House of Levi, bless ye Jehovah; ye that fear Jehovah, bless Jehovah.
21Blessed be Jehovah out of Zion, who dwelleth at Jerusalem! Hallelujah!
