Praise the LORD'S Wonderful Works. Vanity of Idols.
1 Praise R4242 F1429 the F1430 LORD!
Praise the name of the LORD;
Praise Him, O servants R4243 of the LORD,
2 You who stand in the house of the LORD,
In the courts R4244 of the house of our God!
3 Praise F1431 the F1432 LORD, for the R4245 LORD is good;
Sing R4246 praises to His name, for R4247 it is lovely.
4 For the F1433 LORD has chosen R4248 Jacob for Himself,
Israel for His own R4249 F1434 possession.
5 For I know that the R4250 LORD is great
And that our Lord is above R4251 all gods.
6 Whatever R4252 the LORD pleases, He does,
In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps.
7 He F1435 causes R4253 the vapors F1436 to ascend from the ends of the earth;
Who makes R4254 lightnings for the rain,
Who brings R4253 forth the wind from His treasuries.
8 He F1437 smote R4255 the firstborn of Egypt,
Both F1438 of man and beast.
9 He F1439 sent signs R4256 and wonders into your midst, O Egypt,
Upon Pharaoh R4257 and all his servants.
10 He R4258 F1440 smote R4259 many nations
And slew mighty kings,
11 Sihon, R4260 king of the Amorites,
And Og, R4261 king of Bashan,
And all R4262 the kingdoms of Canaan;
12 And He gave R4263 their land as a heritage,
A heritage to Israel His people.
13 Your name, R4264 O LORD, is everlasting,
Your remembrance, F1441 O LORD, throughout F1442 all generations.
14 For the LORD will judge R4265 His people
And will R4266 have compassion on His servants.
15 The idols R4267 of the nations are but 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,
Nor is there any breath at all in their mouths.
18 Those who make them will be like them,
Yes, everyone who trusts in them.
19 O house of Israel, R4268 bless the LORD;
O house of Aaron, bless the LORD;
20 O house of Levi, bless the LORD;
You who R4269 revere F1443 the LORD, bless the LORD.
21 Blessed be the LORD from R4270 Zion,
Who dwells R4271 in Jerusalem.
Praise F1444 the F1445 LORD!
