136 1  Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good;
for his loving kindness endures forever. 2  Give thanks to the God of gods;
for his loving kindness endures forever. 3  Give thanks to the Lord of lords;
for his loving kindness endures forever: 4  To him who alone does great wonders;
for his loving kindness endures forever: 5  To him who by understanding made the heavens;
for his loving kindness endures forever: 6  To him who spread out the earth above the waters;
for his loving kindness endures forever: 7  To him who made the great lights;
for his loving kindness endures forever: 8  The sun to rule by day;
for his loving kindness endures forever; 9  The moon and stars to rule by night;
for his loving kindness endures forever:

10  To him who struck down the Egyptian firstborn;
for his loving kindness endures forever; 11  And brought out Israel from among them;
for his loving kindness endures forever; 12  With a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm;
for his loving kindness endures forever: 13  To him who divided the Red Sea [1] apart;
for his loving kindness endures forever; 14  And made Israel to pass through its midst;
for his loving kindness endures forever; 15  But overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea [2];
for his loving kindness endures forever: 16  To him who led his people through the wilderness;
for his loving kindness endures forever: 17  To him who struck great kings;
for his loving kindness endures forever; 18  And killed mighty kings;
for his loving kindness endures forever: 19  Sihon king of the Amorites;
for his loving kindness endures forever; 20  Og king of Bashan;
for his loving kindness endures forever; 21  And gave their land as an inheritance;
for his loving kindness endures forever; 22  Even a heritage to Israel his servant;
for his loving kindness endures forever:

23  Who remembered us in our low estate;
for his loving kindness endures forever; 24  And has delivered us from our adversaries;
for his loving kindness endures forever: 25  Who gives food to every creature;
for his loving kindness endures forever. 26  Oh give thanks to the God of heaven;
for his loving kindness endures forever.
