Praise the name of the Lord; praise,
O you servants of the Lord
who stand in the house of the Lord,
in the courts of the house of our God.
Praise the Lord because the Lord is good.
Make music to his name: it is sweet music.
Make sweet music to his name
because he has chosen Jacob for himself.
For I know the Lord is great,
and lord over all the gods.
The Lord has done as he pleased
in heaven and in earth
in the seas and all the depths.
His are the mists rising from the north;
his the rain, terrible with lightning;
his the winds summoned from his storehouse.
He struck Egypt—of man and animals the firstborn.
He sent signs and he sent portents down on Egypt,
against Pharaoh and his servants.
He struck great nations
and killed the kings of numerous peoples:
Sihon, the king of the Amorites
and Og, the king of Bashan,
and all the kingdoms of the Canaanites,
and he gave their lands in inheritance,
an inheritance for Israel, his people.
O Lord, your name is everlasting.
O Lord, the memory of you stretches
from one generation to another.
A memory and a hope, because
the Lord will judge his people,
and he have compassion on his servants.
The idols of the nations are of silver and of gold,
the work of a man.
With a mouth that does not speak,
with their eyes that do not see,
with their ears that do not hear;
indeed, they do not breathe,
there is no breath in their mouth.
And they will be like them who make them—
all who trust in them.
O house of Israel, bless the Lord.
O house of Aaron, bless the Lord.
O house of Levi, bless the Lord.
You who fear the Lord, bless the Lord.
Blessed be the Lord from Zion,
the Lord who dwells in Jerusalem.
