Psalm 135-136 Darby’s Translation

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

The Greatness of the LORD and the Vanity of Idols

135 1 Hallelujah! Praise the name of Jehovah; praise, 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 Jah; for Jehovah is good: sing psalms unto his name; for it is pleasant. 4 For Jah hath chosen Jacob unto himself, Israel for his own possession.

5 For I know that Jehovah is great, and our Lord is above all gods. 6 Whatsoever Jehovah pleased, he hath done in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all deeps; 7 Who 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: 8 Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast; 9 Who sent signs and miracles into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh and upon all his servants; 10 Who smote great 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 an inheritance, an inheritance unto Israel his people. 13 Thy name, O Jehovah, is for ever; thy memorial, O Jehovah, from generation to generation. 14 For Jehovah will judge his people, and will repent in favour of his servants.

15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of men's hands: 16 They have a mouth, and they speak not; eyes have they, and they see not; 17 They have ears, and they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouth. 18 They that make them are like unto them,—every one that confideth in them. 19 House of Israel, bless ye Jehovah; house of Aaron, bless ye Jehovah; 20 House of Levi, bless ye Jehovah; ye that fear Jehovah, bless Jehovah. 21 Blessed be Jehovah out of Zion, who dwelleth at Jerusalem! Hallelujah!

Praise for the LORD's Everlasting Mercy

136 1 Give ye thanks unto Jehovah, for he is good; for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever: 2 Give thanks unto the God of gods, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 3 Give thanks unto the Lord of lords, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever. 4 To him who alone doeth great wonders, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever: 5 To him that by understanding made the heavens, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 6 To him that stretched out the earth above the waters, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 7 To him that made great lights, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 8 The sun for rule over the day, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever, 9 The moon and stars for rule over the night, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever:

10 To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever, 11 And brought out Israel from among them, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever, 12 With a powerful hand and with a stretched-out arm, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 13 To him that divided the Red sea into parts, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever, 14 And made Israel to pass through the midst of it, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever, 15 And overturned Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 16 To him that led his people through the wilderness, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 17 To him that smote great kings, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever, 18 And slew famous kings, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 19 Sihon king of the Amorites, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever, 20 And Og king of Bashan, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 21 And gave their land for an inheritance, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever, 22 An inheritance unto Israel his servant, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever:

23 Who hath remembered us in our low estate, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever; 24 And hath delivered us from our oppressors, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever: 25 Who giveth food to all flesh, for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever. 26 Give ye thanks unto the God of the heavens; for his loving-kindness [endureth] for ever.

1 Corinthians 12 Darby’s Translation

Spiritual Gifts

12 1 But concerning spiritual [manifestations], brethren, I do not wish you to be ignorant. 2 Ye know that when ye were [of the] nations [ye were] led away to dumb idols, in whatever way ye might be led. 3 I give you therefore to know, that no one, speaking in [the power of the] Spirit of God, says, Curse [on] Jesus; and no one can say, Lord Jesus, unless in [the power of the] Holy Spirit. 4 But there are distinctions of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5 and there are distinctions of services, and the same Lord; 6 and there are distinctions of operations, but the same God who operates all things in all. 7 But to each the manifestation of the Spirit is given for profit. 8 For to one, by the Spirit, is given [the] word of wisdom; and to another [the] word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit; 9 and to a different one faith, in [the power of] the same Spirit; and to another gifts of healing in [the power of] the same Spirit; 10 and to another operations of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discerning of spirits; and to a different one kinds of tongues; and to another interpretation of tongues. 11 But all these things operates the one and the same Spirit, dividing to each in particular according as he pleases.

12 For even as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of the body, being many, are one body, so also [is] the Christ. 13 For also in [the power of] one Spirit we have all been baptised into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bondmen or free, and have all been given to drink of one Spirit. 14 For also the body is not one member but many. 15 If the foot say, Because I am not a hand I am not of the body, is it on account of this not indeed of the body? 16 And if the ear say, Because I am not an eye I am not of the body, is it on account of this not indeed of the body? 17 If the whole body [were] an eye, where the hearing? if all hearing, where the smelling? 18 But now God has set the members, each one of them in the body, according as it has pleased [him]. 19 But if all were one member, where the body? 20 But now the members [are] many, and the body one. 21 The eye cannot say to the hand, I have not need of thee; or again, the head to the feet, I have not need of you. 22 But much rather, the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; 23 and those [parts] of the body which we esteem to be the more void of honour, these we clothe with more abundant honour; and our uncomely [parts] have more abundant comeliness; 24 but our comely [parts] have not need. But God has tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to [the part] that lacked; 25 that there might be no division in the body, but that the members might have the same concern one for another. 26 And if one member suffer, all the members suffer with [it]; and if one member be glorified, all the members rejoice with [it].

27 Now ye are Christ's body, and members in particular. 28 And God has set certain in the assembly: first, apostles; secondly, prophets; thirdly, teachers; then miraculous powers; then gifts of healings; helps; governments; kinds of tongues. 29 [Are] all apostles? [are] all prophets? [are] all teachers? [are] all [in possession of] miraculous powers? 30 have all gifts of healings? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31 But desire earnestly the greater gifts, and yet shew I unto you a way of more surpassing excellence.
