give praise, O vservants of the Lord,
2 who nstand in the house of the Lord,
in wthe courts of the house of our God!
3 Praise the Lord, for xthe Lord is good;
4 For the Lord has zchosen Jacob for himself,
Israel as his aown possession.
5 For I know that bthe Lord is great,
6 cWhatever the Lord pleases, he does,
7 dHe it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth,
who emakes lightnings for the rain
and brings forth the wind from his fstorehouses.
8 He it was who gstruck down the firstborn of Egypt,
sent hsigns and wonders
10 iwho struck down many nations
11 jSihon, king of the Amorites,
and kOg, king of Bashan,
and lall the kingdoms of Canaan,
12 and mgave their land as a heritage,
13 nYour name, O Lord, endures forever,
14 pFor the Lord will vindicate his people
and qhave compassion on his servants.
15 rThe idols of the nations are silver and gold,
19 sO house of Israel, bless the Lord!
21 Blessed be the Lord tfrom Zion,
he who udwells in Jerusalem!
vPraise the Lord!
