Psalms 135

1 Praise You יה (Haleluyah)! Praise You the name of יהוה; praise Him, O you servants of יהוה.

2 You that stand in the house of יהוה, in the courts of the house of our God (Elohim),

3 Praise You יה (Haleluyah), for יהוה is good; sing praises unto His name; for it is pleasant.

4 For יהוה hath chosen Jacob (Yaaqov) unto Himself, and Yisrael for His peculiar treasure.

5 For I know that יהוה is great, and that our Lord (Adonai) is above all elohim (mighty ones).

6 Whatsoever יהוה pleased, that did He in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.

7 He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; He maketh lightnings for the rain; He bringeth the wind out of His treasuries.

8 Who smote the firstborn of Egypt (Mitsrayim), both of man and beast.

9 Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt (Mitsrayim), upon Pharaoh (Paroh), and upon all His servants.

10 Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings;

11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan;

12 And gave their land for a heritage, a heritage unto Yisrael His people.

13 Your name, O יהוה, endureth forever; and Your memorial, O יהוה, throughout all generations.

14 For יהוה will judge His people, and He will have compassion concerning His servants.

15 The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.

16 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;

17 They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths.

18 Those who make them are like unto them; so is every one who trusteth in them.

19 Bless יהוה, O house of Yisrael; bless יהוה, O house of Aaron (Aharon);

20 Bless יהוה, O house of Lewi; you who fear יהוה, bless יהוה.

21 Blessed be יהוה out of Zion (Tsiyon), Who dwelleth at Yerushalayim. Praise You יה (Haleluyah).
