Your Name, O Lord, Endures Forever

Psalm 135

1 Praise the LORD!
Praise the name of the LORD;
a Praise Him, O you servants of the LORD!
2 b You who stand in the house of the LORD,
In c the courts of the house of our God,
3 Praise the LORD, for d the LORD is good;
Sing praises to His name, e for it is pleasant.
4 For f the LORD has chosen Jacob for Himself,
Israel for His 1 special treasure.

5 For I know that g the LORD is great,
And our Lord is above all gods.
6 h Whatever the LORD pleases He does,
In heaven and in earth,
In the seas and in all deep places.
7 i He causes the 2 vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
j He makes lightning for the rain;
He brings the wind out of His k treasuries.

8 l He 3 destroyed the firstborn of Egypt,
4 Both of man and beast.
9 m He sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt,
n Upon Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 o He defeated many nations
And slew mighty kings -
11 Sihon king of the Amorites,
Og king of Bashan,
And p all the kingdoms of Canaan -
12 q And gave their land as a 5 heritage,
A heritage to Israel His people.

13 r Your name, O LORD, endures forever,
Your fame, O LORD, throughout all generations.
14 s For the LORD will judge His people,
And He will have compassion on His servants.

15 t The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
The work of men's hands.
16 They have mouths, but they do not speak;
Eyes they have, but they do not see;
17 They have ears, but they do not hear;
Nor is there any breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them are like them;
So is everyone who trusts in them.

19 u Bless the LORD, O house of Israel!
Bless the LORD, O house of Aaron!
20 Bless the LORD, O house of Levi!
You who fear the LORD, bless the LORD!
21 Blessed be the LORD v out of Zion,
Who dwells in Jerusalem!
Praise the LORD!
