Psalm 135. Laudate Nomen.
O PRAISE the LORD, laud ye the Name of the LORD; * praise it,
O ye servants of the LORD;
2 Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, * in the courts of
the house of our God.
3 O praise the LORD, for the LORD is gracious; * O sing praises
unto his Name, for it is lovely.
4 For why? the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, * and Israel
for his own possession.
5 For I know that the LORD is great, * and that our Lord is above
6 Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in
earth; * and in the sea, and in all deep places.
7 He bringeth forth the clouds from the ends of the world, *
and sendeth forth lightnings with the rain, bringing the winds
out of his treasuries.
8 He smote the firstborn of Egypt, * both of man and beast.
9 He hath sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O thou
land of Egypt; * upon Pharaoh, and all his servants.
10 He smote divers nations, * and slew mighty kings:
11 Sihon, king of the Amorites; and Og, the king of Bashan; *
and all the kingdoms of Canaan;
12 And gave their land to be an heritage, * even an heritage
unto Israel his people.
13 Thy Name, O LORD, endureth for ever; * so doth thy memorial,
O LORD, from one generation to another.
14 For the LORD will avenge his people, * and be gracious unto
15 As for the images of the heathen, they are but silver and
gold; * the work of men's hands.
16 They have mouths, and speak not; * eyes have they, but they
17 They have ears, and yet they hear not; * neither is there
any breath in their mouths.
18 They that make them are like unto them; * and so are all they
that put their trust in them.
19 Praise the LORD, ye house of Israel; * praise the LORD, ye
house of Aaron.
20 Praise the LORD, ye house of Levi; * ye that fear the LORD,
praise the LORD.
21 Praised be the LORD out of Sion, * who dwelleth at Jerusalem.
