1 Praise ye the
LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him, O ye servants
of the LORD.
2 Ye that 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 unto his
name; for it is pleasant.
4 For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for
his peculiar treasure.
5 For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above
6 Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in
earth, in the seas, and all deep places.
7 He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth;
he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out
of his treasuries.
8 Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast.
9 Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt,
upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.
10 Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings;
11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all
the kingdoms of Canaan:
12 And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel
13 Thy name, O LORD, endureth for ever; and thy memorial, O
LORD, throughout all generations.
14 For the LORD will judge his people, and he will repent himself
concerning his servants.
15 The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of
16 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but
they see not;
17 They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath
in their mouths.
18 They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that
trusteth in them.
19 Bless the LORD, O house of Israel: bless the LORD, O house
20 Bless the LORD, O house of Levi: ye that fear the LORD, bless
21 Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem.
Praise ye the LORD.
