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.
