1 O praise the Lord. Praise the Name of the Lord;*
offer praise, you servants of the Lord,
2 You who stand in the house of the Lord,*
in the courts of the house of our God.
3 O praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;*
sing praises unto his Name, for it is lovely.
4 For the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself*
and Israel for his own possession.
5 For I know that the Lord is great,*
and that our Lord is above all gods.
6 Whatsoever the Lord pleases he does, in heaven and on earth,*
in the seas and in all the deep places.
7 He brings forth clouds from the ends of the earth*
and sends forth lightning with the rain, bringing the wind out of his treasuries.
8 It was he who struck down the firstborn of Egypt,*
both of man and beast.
9 He sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O land of Egypt,*
against Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 He smote many nations,*
and slew mighty kings:
11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og the king of Bashan,*
and all the kingdoms of Canaan.
12 And he gave their land to be an inheritance,*
an inheritance for Israel his people.
13 Your Name, O Lord, endures for ever;*
so does your renown, O Lord, from one generation to another.
14 For the Lord will avenge his people*
and have compassion upon his servants.
15 As for the idols of the nations, they are but silver and gold,*
the work of human hands.
16 They have mouths, but they speak not;*
eyes have they, but they see not;
17 They have ears, and yet they hear not,*
neither is there any breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them are like them,*
and so are all who put their trust in them.
19 Praise the Lord, O house of Israel;*
praise the Lord, O house of Aaron.
20 Praise the Lord, O house of Levi;*
you who fear the Lord, praise the Lord.
21 Praised be the Lord from Zion,*
who dwells in Jerusalem. Praise the Lord.
