135 Praise Jah!*
Praise the name of Jehovah;
Offer praise, you servants of Jehovah,+
2 You who are standing in the house of Jehovah,
In the courtyards of the house of our God.+
3 Praise Jah, for Jehovah is good.+
Sing praises* to his name, for it is pleasant.
4 For Jah has chosen Jacob for himself,
Israel for his special property.*+
5 For I well know that Jehovah is great;
Our Lord is greater than all other gods.+
6 Jehovah does everything he pleases to do+
In heaven and on earth, in the seas and all the depths.
7 He causes clouds* to ascend from the ends of the earth;
He makes lightning for* the rain;
He brings the wind out of his storehouses.+
8 He struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
Both man and beast.+
9 He sent signs and miracles among you, O Egypt,+
Against Pharʹaoh and all his servants.+
10 He struck down many nations+
And killed mighty kings+
11 —Siʹhon the king of the Amʹor·ites,+
Og the king of Baʹshan,+
And all the kingdoms of Caʹnaan.
12 He gave their land as an inheritance,
An inheritance to Israel his people.+
13 O Jehovah, your name endures forever.
O Jehovah, your fame* endures for all generations.+
14 For Jehovah will defend* his people,+
And he will feel compassion* for his servants.+
15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
The work of human hands.+
16 A mouth they have, but they cannot speak;+
Eyes, but they cannot see;
17 Ears they have, but they cannot hear.
There is no breath in their mouth.+
18 The people who make them will become just like them,+
As will all those who trust in them.+
19 O house of Israel, praise Jehovah.
O house of Aaron, praise Jehovah.
20 O house of Leʹvi, praise Jehovah.+
You who fear Jehovah, praise Jehovah.
21 May Jehovah be praised from Zion,+
The One residing in Jerusalem.+
