Psalm 135 New American Standard Bible

The Greatness of the LORD and the Vanity of Idols

135 Praise the Lord ! Praise the name of the Lord ; Praise Him, O servants of the Lord , 2  You who stand in the house of the Lord , In the courts of the house of our God ! 3  Praise the Lord , for the Lord is good ; Sing praises to His name , for it is lovely . 4  For the Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself, Israel for His own possession .

5  For I know that the Lord is great And that our Lord is above all gods . 6  Whatever e the Lord pleases , He does , In heaven and in earth , in the seas and in all deeps . 7  He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth ; Who makes lightnings for the rain , Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries . 8  He smote the firstborn of Egypt , Both of man and beast . 9  He sent signs and wonders into your midst , O Egypt , Upon Pharaoh and all his servants . 10  He 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 He gave their land as a heritage , A heritage to Israel His people . 13  Your name , O Lord , is everlasting , Your remembrance , O Lord , throughout all generations . 14  For the Lord will judge His people And will have compassion on His servants .

15  The idols of the nations are but silver and gold , The work of man's hands . 16  They have mouths , but they do not speak ; They have eyes , but they do not see ; 17  They have ears , but they do not hear , Nor is there any breath at all in their mouths . 18  Those who make them will be like them, Yes, everyone who trusts in them. 19  O house of Israel , bless the Lord ; O house of Aaron , bless the Lord ; 20  O house of Levi , bless the Lord ; You who revere the Lord , bless the Lord . 21  Blessed be the Lord from Zion , Who dwells in Jerusalem . Praise the Lord !
