Psalm 135-136 American Standard Version

<< Psalm 134 | Psalm 135-136 | Psalm 137 >>

The Greatness of the LORD and the Vanity of Idols

135 1 Praise ye Jehovah. Praise ye the name of Jehovah; Praise [him], O ye servants of Jehovah, 2 Ye that stand in the house of Jehovah, In the courts of the house of our God. 3 Praise ye Jehovah; For Jehovah is good: Sing praises unto his name; For it is pleasant. 4 For Jehovah hath chosen Jacob unto himself, [And] Israel for his own possession.

5 For I know that Jehovah is great, And that our Lord is above all gods. 6 Whatsoever Jehovah pleased, that hath he done, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps; 7 Who causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; Who maketh lightnings for the rain; Who bringeth forth the wind out of his treasuries; 8 Who smote the first-born of Egypt, Both of man and beast; 9 Who sent signs and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, Upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants; 10 Who smote many nations, And slew mighty kings, 11 Sihon king of the Amorites, And Og king of Bashan, And all the kingdoms of Canaan, 12 And gave their land for a heritage, A heritage unto Israel his people. 13 Thy name, O Jehovah, [endureth] for ever; Thy memorial [name], O Jehovah, throughout all generations. 14 For Jehovah will judge his people, And repent himself concerning his servants.

15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, The work of men's hands. 16 They have mouths, but they speak not; Eyes have they, but they see not; 17 They have ears, but they hear not; Neither is there any breath in their mouths. 18 They that make them shall be like unto them; Yea, every one that trusteth in them. 19 O house of Israel, bless ye Jehovah: O house of Aaron, bless ye Jehovah: 20 O house of Levi, bless ye Jehovah: Ye that fear Jehovah, bless ye Jehovah. 21 Blessed be Jehovah out of Zion, Who dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye Jehovah.

Praise for the LORD's Everlasting Mercy

136 1 Oh give thanks unto Jehovah; For he is good; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. 2 Oh give thanks unto the God of gods; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. 3 Oh give thanks unto the Lord of lords; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: 4 To him who alone doeth great wonders; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: 5 To him that by understanding made the heavens; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: 6 To him that spread forth the earth above the waters; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: 7 To him that made great lights; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: 8 The sun to rule by day; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; 9 The moon and stars to rule by night; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever:

10 To him that smote Egypt in their first-born; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; 11 And brought out Israel from among them; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; 12 With a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: 13 To him that divided the Red Sea in sunder; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; 14 And made Israel to pass through the midst of it; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; 15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: 16 To him that led his people through the wilderness; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: 17 To him that smote great kings; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; 18 And slew famous kings; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: 19 Sihon king of the Amorites; For his lovingkindness [endureth] forever; 20 And Og king of Bashan; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; 21 And gave their land for a heritage; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; 22 Even a heritage unto Israel his servant; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever:

23 Who remembered us in our low estate; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever; 24 And hath delivered us from our adversaries; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever: 25 Who giveth food to all flesh; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. 26 Oh give thanks unto the God of heaven; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever.

1 Corinthians 12 American Standard Version

Spiritual Gifts

12 1 Now concerning spiritual [gifts], brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 2 Ye know that when ye were Gentiles [ye were] led away unto those dumb idols, howsoever ye might led. 3 Wherefore I make known unto you, that no man speaking in the Spirit of God saith, Jesus is anathema; and no man can say, Jesus is Lord, but in the Holy Spirit. 4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are diversities of ministrations, and the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of workings, but the same God, who worketh all things in all. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit to profit withal. 8 For to one is given through the Spirit the word of wisdom; and to another the word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit: 9 to another faith, in the same Spirit; and to another gifts of healings, in the one Spirit; 10 and to another workings of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discernings of spirits; to another [divers] kinds of tongues; and to another the interpretation of tongues: 11 but all these worketh the one and the same Spirit, dividing to each one severally even as he will.

12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is Christ. 13 For in one Spirit were we all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all made to drink of one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; it is not therefore not of the body. 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; it is not therefore not of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 18 But now hath God set the members each one of them in the body, even as it pleased him. 19 And if they were all one member, where were the body? 20 But now they are many members, but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, I have no need of thee: or again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 22 Nay, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be more feeble are necessary: 23 and those [parts] of the body, which we think to be less honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor; and our uncomely [parts] have more abundant comeliness; 24 whereas our comely [parts] have no need: but God tempered the body together, giving more abundant honor to that [part] which lacked; 25 that there should be no schism in the body; but [that] the members should have the same care one for another. 26 And whether one member suffereth, all the members suffer with it; or [one] member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.

27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and severally members thereof. 28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, [divers] kinds of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all [workers of] miracles? 30 have all gifts of healings? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31 But desire earnestly the greater gifts. And moreover a most excellent way show I unto you.
