Praise the name of the Lord. Praise him, you servants of the Lord. 2 Praise him, you who stand in the Lord’s Temple and in the Temple courtyards. 3 Praise the Lord, because he is good. Sing praises to him, because it is pleasant.
4 The Lord has chosen the people of Jacob for himself. He has chosen the people of Israel for his very own. 5 I know that the Lord is great. Our Lord is greater than all the gods. 6 The Lord does what he wants, in heaven and on earth, in the seas and the deep oceans. 7 He brings the clouds from the ends of the earth. He sends the lightning with the rain. He brings out the wind from his storehouses.
8 He destroyed the firstborn sons in Egypt, the firstborn of both men and animals. 9 He did many signs and miracles in Egypt. He did amazing things to the king and his servants. 10 He defeated many nations and killed powerful kings: 11 Sihon king of the Amorites, Og king of Bashan and all the kings of Canaan. 12 Then he gave their land as a gift. It was a gift to his people, the Israelites.
13 Lord, your name is everlasting. Lord, you will be remembered from now on. 14 You defend your people. You have mercy on your servants.
15 The idols of other nations are made of silver and gold. They are made by human hands. 16 They have mouths, but they cannot speak. They have eyes, but they cannot see. 17 They have ears, but they cannot hear. They have no breath in their mouths. 18 The people who make idols and trust them are all like them.
19 Family of Israel, praise the Lord. Family of Aaron, praise the Lord. 20 Family of Levi, praise the Lord. You people who fear the Lord should praise him. 21 You people of Jerusalem, praise the Lord on Mount Zion.
