PSALM 135

Hallelujah

1 Praise ye the name of Jehovah; Praise [it] O ye servants of Jehovah!

2 Who stand in the house of Jehovah, [And ye who stand] in the courts of the house of our God.

3 Praise God; for good is Jehovah: Sing to his name; for it is pleasant:

4 For God hath chosen Jacob to himself, Israel for his own possession.

5 For I know that great is Jehovah, And that our God is above all gods.

6 All things which Jehovah pleaseth, he doeth in the heavens and on the earth, In the sea and in all the deeps.

7 Causing the clouds to ascend from the end of the earth: The lightnings for the rain he maketh, Bringing forth the wind out of his secret places.

8 He smote the first born of Egypt, From man even unto beast.

9 He sent signs and wonders in the midst of thee, O Egypt! On Pharaoh and on all his servants.

10 He smote great nations, And slew mighty kings.

11 Sihon, king of the Amorites, And Og the king of Basham, And all the kingdoms of Canaan.

12 And gave their land for an heritage, An heritage to Israel, his people.

13 O Jehovah! thy name is for ever; O Jehovah! thy memorial is from generation to generation.

14 For judge will Jehovah his people, And concerning his servants he will repent himself.

15 The images of the nations are silver and gold, The work of the hands of man.

16 A mouth have they, and they will not speak; 399399     In the French version the verb for “speak” in this line; and the verbs for “see” and “hear” in the two next lines, are in the present tense. Eyes have they, and they will not see.

17 Ears have they, and they will not hear: Also, there is no breath in their mouth.

18 Like unto them are those who make them, And every one who trusteth in them.

19 O house of Israel! bless ye Jehovah; O house of Aaron! bless ye Jehovah;

20 O house of Levi! bless ye Jehovah; O ye who fear Jehovah! bless ye Jehovah.

21 Blessed be Jehovah out of Zion, Who dwelleth at Jerusalem. Hallelujah.
