Psalm 135

Your Name, O Lord, Endures Forever

1Praise the Lord!

Praise the name of the Lord,

give praise, O servants of the Lord,

2who stand in the house of the Lord,

in the courts of the house of our God!

3Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;

sing to his name, for it is pleasant!1

4For the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself,

Israel as his own possession.

5For I know that the Lord is great,

and that our Lord is above all gods.

6Whatever the Lord pleases, he does,

in heaven and on earth,

in the seas and all deeps.

7He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth,

who makes lightnings for the rain

and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.

8He it was who struck down the firstborn of Egypt,

both of man and of beast;

9who in your midst, O Egypt,

sent signs and wonders

against Pharaoh and all his servants;

10who struck down many nations

and killed mighty kings,

11Sihon, king of the Amorites,

and Og, king of Bashan,

and all the kingdoms of Canaan,

12and gave their land as a heritage,

a heritage to his people Israel.

13Your name, O Lord, endures forever,

your renown,2 O Lord, throughout all ages.

14For the Lord will vindicate his people

and have compassion on his servants.

15The idols of the nations are silver and gold,

the work of human hands.

16They have mouths, but do not speak;

they have eyes, but do not see;

17they have ears, but do not hear,

nor is there any breath in their mouths.

18Those who make them become like them,

so do all who trust in them.

19O house of Israel, bless the Lord!

O house of Aaron, bless the Lord!

20O house of Levi, bless the Lord!

You who fear the Lord, bless the Lord!

21Blessed be the Lord from Zion,

he who dwells in Jerusalem!

Praise the Lord!
