The Message

Psalm 135

11-4 Hallelujah!
Praise the name of God,
    praise the works of God.
All you priests on duty in God’s temple,
    serving in the sacred halls of our God,
Shout “Hallelujah!” because God’s so good,
    sing anthems to his beautiful name.
And why? Because God chose Jacob,
    embraced Israel as a prize possession.

5-12 I, too, give witness to the greatness of God,
    our Lord, high above all other gods.
He does just as he pleases—
    however, wherever, whenever.
He makes the weather—clouds and thunder,
    lightning and rain, wind pouring out of the north.
He struck down the Egyptian firstborn,
    both human and animal firstborn.
He made Egypt sit up and take notice,
    confronted Pharaoh and his servants with miracles.
Yes, he struck down great nations,
    he slew mighty kings—
Sihon king of the Amorites, also Og of Bashan—
    every last one of the Canaanite kings!
Then he turned their land over to Israel,
    a gift of good land to his people.

13-18 God, your name is eternal,
    God, you’ll never be out-of-date.
God stands up for his people,
    God holds the hands of his people.
The gods of the godless nations are mere trinkets,
    made for quick sale in the markets:
Chiseled mouths that can’t talk,
    painted eyes that can’t see,
Carved ears that can’t hear—
    dead wood! cold metal!
Those who make and trust them
    become like them.

19-21 Family of Israel, bless God!
    Family of Aaron, bless God!
Family of Levi, bless God!
    You who fear God, bless God!
Oh, blessed be God of Zion,
    First Citizen of Jerusalem!
Hallelujah!

诗篇 135

赞美之歌

11-2 你们要赞美耶和华!
赞美祂的名!
耶和华的仆人啊,
在耶和华的殿中,
在我们上帝的院宇中事奉的人啊,
你们要赞美祂!
你们要赞美耶和华,
因为祂是美善的;
你们要歌颂祂的名,
因为祂的名美好无比。
祂拣选雅各做祂的子民,
拣选以色列作祂的产业。
我知道耶和华伟大,
我们的主超越一切神明。
耶和华在天上、地下、海洋、
深渊按自己的旨意行事。
祂使云雾从地极上升,
发出电光,带来雨水,
从祂的仓库带出风来。

祂击杀了埃及人的长子和头胎的牲畜。
祂在埃及行神迹奇事,
惩罚法老和他的一切臣仆。
10 祂毁灭列国,
杀戮强大的君王:
11 亚摩利王西宏、巴珊王噩和迦南所有的君王。
12 祂把这些国家的土地赐给祂的以色列子民,
作为他们的产业。
13 耶和华啊,
你的名永远长存,
你的威名传到万代。
14 因为耶和华必为祂的子民申冤,
怜悯祂的仆人。

15 外族人的神像是人用金银造的。
16 它们有口不能说,有眼不能看,
17 有耳不能听,口中毫无气息。
18 那些制造它们、信靠它们的人也会和它们一样。
19 以色列人啊,
你们要称颂耶和华!
亚伦的子孙啊,
你们要称颂耶和华!
20 利未的子孙啊,
你们要称颂耶和华!
你们敬畏耶和华的人都要称颂祂![a]
21 要赞美锡安的耶和华,
赞美住在耶路撒冷的耶和华。
你们要赞美耶和华!
