1: Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise [him], O ye servants of the LORD. 2: Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God, 3: Praise the LORD; for the LORD [is] good; sing praises to his name; for [it is] pleasant. 4: For the LORD hath chosen Jacob to himself, [and] Israel for his peculiar treasure. 5: For I know that the LORD [is] great, and [that] our Lord [is] above all gods. 6: Whatever the LORD pleased, [that] did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places. 7: He causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries. 8: Who smote the first-born of Egypt, both of man and beast. 9: [Who] sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants. 10: Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings; 11: Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan: 12: And gave their land [for] a heritage, a heritage to Israel his people. 13: Thy name, O LORD, [endureth] for ever; [and] thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations. 14: For the LORD will judge his people, and he will repent concerning his servants. 15: The idols of the heathen [are] silver and gold, the work of men's hands. 16: They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not. 17: They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there [any] breath in their mouths. 18: They that make them are like them: [so is] every one that trusteth in them. 19: Bless the LORD, O house of Israel: bless the LORD, O house of Aaron: 20: Bless the LORD, O house of Levi: ye that fear the LORD, bless the LORD. 21: Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, who dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
