Psalm 135                                                                                                 Friday Evening 3


Praise the name of Yahweh! * Praise the works of Yahweh,

    you who stand in the house of Yahweh, * in the courts of the house of our God.

    Praise Yah, for Yahweh is good; * chant to his Name, which is very pleasant.

For Yah chose Jacob for himself, * Israel as his private possession.

    Yes, I acknowledge * that Yahweh is great, * that our Lord is greater than all gods.

        Whatever he wills, * Yahweh does

           in heaven and on earth, * in the seas and in all the depths.

        He raises clouds * from the end of the earth,

    makes lightning for the rain, * brings out wind from his storehouses.

        He struck the firstborn of Egypt, * man as well as beast.

        He sent signs and wonders * into the midst of Egypt, * against Pharaoh and all his servants.

           He struck great nations, * and killed mighty kings,

           even Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, king of Bashan, * yes, all the kings of Canaan.

           He gave out their land for possession, * possession by Israel his people.

        Yahweh, your name is eternal; * Yahweh, your title is for all generations.

    Yes, Yahweh defends his people, * and to his servants shows himself compassionate.

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

        They have mouths, but do not speak. * They have eyes, but do not see.

        They have ears, but do not hear; * There is no breath in their mouths.

    Like them shall their makers become, * everyone who trusts in them.

House of Israel, bless Yahweh; * house of Aaron, bless Yahweh;

    house of Levi, bless Yahweh; * you who fear Yahweh, bless Yahweh.

Blessed be Yahweh of Zion, * the Resident of Jerusalem.
