Behold now, praise the Lord *
all ye servants of the Lord;
Ye that by night stand in the house of the Lord *
even in the courts of the house of our God.
Lift up your hands in the sanctuary *
and praise the Lord.
The Lord that made heaven and earth *
give thee blessing out of Sion.
O praise the Lord, laud ye the Name of the Lord *
praise it, O ye servants of the Lord;
Ye that stand in the house of the Lord *
in the courts of the house of our God.
O praise the Lord, for the Lord is gracious *
O sing praises unto his Name, for it is lovely.
For why? the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself *
and Israel for his own possession.
For I know that the Lord is great *
and that our Lord is above all gods.
Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven and in earth *
and in the sea, and in all deep places.
He bringeth forth the clouds from the ends of the world *
and sendeth forth lightnings with the rain, bringing the winds out of his treasures.
He smote the first-born of Egypt *
both of man and beast.
He hath sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O thou land of Egypt *
upon Pharaoh, and all his servants.
He smote divers nations *
and slew mighty kings;
Sehon king of the Amorites, and Og the king of Basan *
and all the kingdoms of Canaan;
And gave their land to be an heritage *
even an heritage unto Israel his people.
Thy Name, O Lord, endureth for ever *
so doth thy memorial, O Lord, from one generation to another.
For the Lord will avenge his people *
and be gracious unto his servants.
As for the images of the heathen, they are but silver and gold *
the work of men’s hands.
They have mouths, and speak not *
eyes have they, but they see not.
They have ears, and yet they hear not *
neither is there any breath in their mouths.
They that make them are like unto them *
and so are all they that put their trust in them.
Praise the Lord, ye house of Israel *
praise the Lord, ye house of Aaron.
Praise the Lord, ye house of Levi *
ye that fear the Lord, praise the Lord.
Praised be the Lord out of Sion *
who dwelleth at Jerusalem.
