|<< Psalm 135 >>|
Young's Literal Translation
Your Name Endures Forever
(2 Chronicles 7:1-3; Psalm 136:1-26)
1Praise ye Jah! Praise ye the name of Jehovah, Praise, ye servants of Jehovah,
2Who are standing in the house of Jehovah, In the courts of the house of our God.
3Praise ye Jah! for Jehovah [is] good, Sing praise to His name, for [it is] pleasant.
4For Jacob hath Jah chosen for Himself, Israel for His peculiar treasure.
5For I have known that great [is] Jehovah, Yea, our Lord [is] above all gods.
6All that Jehovah pleased He hath done, In the heavens and in earth, In the seas and all deep places,
7Causing vapours to ascend from the end of the earth, Lightnings for the rain He hath made, Bringing forth wind from His treasures.
8Who smote the first-born of Egypt, From man unto beast.
9He sent tokens and wonders into thy midst, O Egypt, On Pharaoh and on all his servants.
10Who smote many nations, and slew strong kings,
11Even Sihon king of the Amorite, And Og king of Bashan, And all kingdoms of Canaan.
12And He gave their land an inheritance, An inheritance to Israel His people,
13O Jehovah, Thy name [is] to the age, O Jehovah, Thy memorial to all generations.
14For Jehovah doth judge His people, And for His servants comforteth Himself.
15The idols of the nations [are] silver and gold, Work of the hands of man.
16A mouth they have, and they speak not, Eyes they have, and they see not,
17Ears they have, and they give not ear, Nose — there is no breath in their mouth!
18Like them are their makers, Every one who is trusting in them.
19O house of Israel, bless ye Jehovah, O house of Aaron, bless ye Jehovah,
20O house of Levi, bless ye Jehovah, Those fearing Jehovah, bless ye Jehovah.
21Blessed [is] Jehovah from Zion, Inhabiting Jerusalem — praise ye Jah!
