1 Praise Jehovah! Praise the name of Jehovah. Praise him you servants of Jehovah.
2 You who stand in the house of Jehovah, in the courtyard of the house of our God,
3 Praise Jehovah for Jehovah is good! Sing praises to his name for it is delightful pleasant.
4 For Jehovah has chosen Jacob for Himself and Israel for his special treasure property.
5 For I know that Jehovah is great, and Jehovah is above all gods.
6 Everything Jehovah desires he does in the heavens and in earth, and in the seas and all deep places.
7 He causes the vapors to rise from the ends of the earth. He makes lightning for the rain. He brings wind out of his storehouses.
8 He destroyed the first-born of Egypt, both of man and animal.
9 He sent signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt, on Pharaoh and on all his servants.
10 He struck great nations and killed mighty kings,
11 Sihon the king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan,
12 and gave their land as an inheritance, an inheritance to Israel His people.
13 Your name, O Jehovah, is forever, and your memorial, O Jehovah, throughout all generations.
14 For Jehovah will judge his people, and he will have pity on his servants.
15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of man's hands.
16 They have mouths, but they do not speak. They have eyes, but they do not see.
17 They have ears, but they do not hear. There is no breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them will be like them, everyone who trusts in them.
19 Bless Jehovah, O house of Israel; bless Jehovah, O house of Aaron;
20 Bless Jehovah, O house of Levi. You who reverence Jehovah, bless Jehovah.
21 Blessed is Jehovah out of Zion, who dwells at Jerusalem. Praise Jehovah!
