Praise the Lord, praise the name of the Lord :
praise him, you servants of the Lord,
Who stand in the house of the Lord :
in the courts of the house of our God.
Praise the Lord, for the Lord is gracious :
sing praises to his name, for it is good.
For the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself :
and Israel as his own possession.
I know that the Lord is great :
and that our Lord is above all gods.
He does whatever he wills, in heaven and upon the earth :
in the seas and in the great depths.
He brings up clouds from the ends of the earth :
he makes lightning for the rain
and brings the wind out of his storehouses.
He struck down the firstborn of Egypt :
both man and beast alike.
He sent signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt :
against Pharaoh and against all his servants.
He struck down great nations :
and slew mighty kings,
Sihon, king of the Amorites,
and Og, the king of Bashan :
and all the princes of Canaan.
He made over their land as a heritage :
a heritage for Israel his people.
O Lord, your name shall endure for ever :
so shall your renown, throughout all generations.
For the Lord will vindicate his people :
he will take pity on his servants.
As for the idols of the nations, they are but silver and gold :
the work of a mans hand.
They have mouths, but speak not :
they have eyes, but they cannot see.
They have ears, yet hear nothing :
there is no breath in their nostrils.
Those who make them shall be like them :
so shall everyone that trusts in them.
Bless the Lord, O house of Israel :
bless the Lord, O house of Aaron.
Bless the Lord, O house of Levi :
you that fear the Lord, bless the Lord.
Blessed be the Lord from Zion :
he that dwells in Jerusalem.
Praise the Lord.
