135:1 Hallelujah. Praise ye the name of the Lord; give praise, O ye servants of the Lord,

135:2 Ye that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God.

135:3 Praise ye the Lord, for the Lord is good; sing praises unto His name, for it is pleasant.

135:4 For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto Himself, and Israel for His own treasure.

135:5 For I know that the Lord is great, and that our L-rd is above all gods.

135:6 Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that hath He done, in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps;

135:7 Who causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; He maketh lightnings for the rain; He bringeth forth the wind out of His treasuries.

135:8 Who smote the first-born of Egypt, both of man and beast.

135:9 He sent signs and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.

135:10 Who smote many nations, and slew mighty kings:

135:11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan;

135:12 And gave their land for a heritage, a heritage unto Israel His people.

135:13 O the Lord, Thy name endureth for ever; thy memorial, O the Lord, throughout all generations.

135:14 For the Lord will judge His people, and repent Himself for His servants.

135:15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.

135:16 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;

135:17 They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths.

135:18 They that make them shall be like unto them; yea, every one that trusteth in them.

135:19 O house of Israel, bless ye the Lord; O house of Aaron, bless ye the Lord;

135:20 O house of Levi, bless ye the Lord; ye that fear the Lord, bless ye the Lord.

135:21 Blessed be the Lord out of Zion, who dwelleth at Jerusalem. Hallelujah.
