An exhortation to praise God for his mercy,
Psalms 135:1 Praise ye Jah! Praise ye the name of Jehovah, Praise, ye servants of Jehovah, Psalms 135:2 Who are standing in the house of Jehovah, In the courts of the house of our God. Psalms 135:3 Praise ye Jah! for Jehovah [is] good, Sing praise to His name, for [it is] pleasant. Psalms 135:4 For Jacob hath Jah chosen for Himself, Israel for His peculiar treasure.
for his power,
Psalms 135:5 For I have known that great [is] Jehovah, Yea, our Lord [is] above all gods. Psalms 135:6 All that Jehovah pleased He hath done, In the heavens and in earth, In the seas and all deep places, Psalms 135:7 Causing vapours to ascend from the end of the earth, Lightnings for the rain He hath made, Bringing forth wind from His treasures.
for his judgments.
Psalms 135:8 Who smote the first-born of Egypt, From man unto beast. Psalms 135:9 He sent tokens and wonders into thy midst, O Egypt, On Pharaoh and on all his servants. Psalms 135:10 Who smote many nations, and slew strong kings, Psalms 135:11 Even Sihon king of the Amorite, And Og king of Bashan, And all kingdoms of Canaan. Psalms 135:12 And He gave their land an inheritance, An inheritance to Israel His people, Psalms 135:13 O Jehovah, Thy name [is] to the age, O Jehovah, Thy memorial to all generations. Psalms 135:14 For Jehovah doth judge His people, And for His servants comforteth Himself.
The vanity of idols.
Psalms 135:15 The idols of the nations [are] silver and gold, Work of the hands of man. Psalms 135:16 A mouth they have, and they speak not, Eyes they have, and they see not, Psalms 135:17 Ears they have, and they give not ear, Nosethere is no breath in their mouth! Psalms 135:18 Like them are their makers, Every one who is trusting in them.
An exhortation to bless God.
Psalms 135:19 O house of Israel, bless ye Jehovah, O house of Aaron, bless ye Jehovah, Psalms 135:20 O house of Levi, bless ye Jehovah, Those fearing Jehovah, bless ye Jehovah. Psalms 135:21 Blessed [is] Jehovah from Zion, Inhabiting Jerusalempraise ye Jah!
