|<< Psalm 135 >>|
Your Name Endures Forever
(2 Chronicles 7:1-3; Psalm 136:1-26)
1Praise ye the name of the Lord: O you his servants, praise the Lord:
2You 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 ye to his name, for it is sweet.
4For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself: Israel for his own possession.
5For I have known that the Lord is great, and our God is above all gods.
6Whatsoever the Lord hath pleased he hath done, in heaven, in earth, in the sea, and in all the deeps.
7He bringeth up clouds from the end of the earth: he hath made lightnings for the rain. He bringeth forth winds out of his stores:
8He slew the firstborn of Egypt from man even unto beast.
9He sent forth signs and wonders in the midst of thee, O Egypt: upon Pharao, and upon all his servants.
10He smote many nations, and slew mighty kings:
11Sehon king of the Amorrhites, and Og king of Basan, and all the kingdoms of Chanaan.
12And gave their land for an inheritance, for an inheritance to his people Israel.
13Thy name, O Lord, is for ever: thy memorial, O Lord, unto all generations.
14For the Lord will judge his people, and will be entreated in favour of his servants.
15The idols of the Gentiles are silver and gold, the works of men's hands.
16They have a mouth, but they speak not: they have eyes, but they see not.
17They have ears, but they hear not: neither is there any breath in their mouths.
18Let them that make them be like to them: and every one that trusteth in them.
19Bless the Lord, O house of Israel: bless the Lord, O house of Aaron.
20Bless the Lord, O house of Levi: you that fear the Lord, bless the Lord.
21Blessed be the Lord out of Sion, who dwelleth in Jerusalem.
