New American Standard Bible

Psalm 135

Praise the Lord’s Wonderful Works. Vanity of Idols.

1[a]Praise [b]the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord;
Praise Him, O servants of the Lord,
You who stand in the house of the Lord,
In the courts of the house of our God!
[c]Praise [d]the Lord, for the Lord is good;
Sing praises to His name, for it is lovely.
For [e]the Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself,
Israel for His [f]own possession.

For I know that the Lord is great
And that our Lord is above all gods.
Whatever the Lord pleases, He does,
In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps.
[g]He causes the [h]vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
Who makes lightnings for the rain,
Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries.

[i]He smote the firstborn of Egypt,
[j]Both of man and beast.
[k]He sent signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt,
Upon Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 [l]He smote many nations
And slew mighty kings,
11 Sihon, king of the Amorites,
And Og, king of Bashan,
And all the kingdoms of Canaan;
12 And He gave their land as a heritage,
A heritage to Israel His people.
13 Your name, O Lord, is everlasting,
Your [m]remembrance, O Lord, [n]throughout all generations.
14 For the Lord will judge His people
And will have compassion on His servants.
15 The idols of the nations are but silver and gold,
The work of man’s hands.
16 They have mouths, but they do not speak;
They have eyes, but they do not see;
17 They have ears, but they do not hear,
Nor is there any breath at all in their mouths.
18 Those who make them will be like them,
Yes, everyone who trusts in them.

19 O house of Israel, bless the Lord;
O house of Aaron, bless the Lord;
20 O house of Levi, bless the Lord;
You who [o]revere the Lord, bless the Lord.
21 Blessed be the Lord from Zion,
Who dwells in Jerusalem.
[p]Praise [q]the Lord!

Salme 135

Herren er stor

1Halleluja!
    Lovpris Herren, I hans tjenere,
I, som tjener i Guds hus,
    I, som arbejder i templets forgård.
Pris Herren, for han er god.
    Lovsyng hans herlighed og nåde,
for Herren har udvalgt Israel.
    Jakobs efterkommere er hans ejendomsfolk.

Jeg ved, at Herren er stor,
    større end alle de andre folks guder.
Han gør alt, hvad han vil,
    på jorden, i himlen og i havets dyb.
Han kalder uvejrsskyer sammen,
    sender lynene af sted,
slipper stormen løs
    og lader regnen styrte ned.
Alle de førstefødte i Egypten slog han ihjel,
    både blandt mennesker og dyr.
Han udførte vældige tegn og undere
    for øjnene af Farao og hele hans folk.
10 Han tilintetgjorde stærke nationer,
    besejrede mægtige herskere,
11 amoritterkongen Sihon, kong Og af Bashan
    og alle kongerne i Kanaʼans land.
12 Han gav deres lande til sit eget folk,
    Israel fik det som sin arvelod.
13 Herre, dit ry vil altid bestå,
    din berømmelse kender ingen grænser.
14 For Herren fører sit folks sag,
    han er barmhjertig mod sine tjenere.
15 Andre folkeslag dyrker afguder,
    som de selv har lavet af sølv og guld.
16 Afguderne har mund, men kan ikke tale.
    De har øjne, men kan ikke se.
17 De har ører, men kan ikke høre,
    for der er ingen livsånde i dem.
18 De mennesker, der formede afgudsbillederne,
    er lige så tåbelige som deres guder.

19 Pris Herren, Israels folk!
    Pris Herren, Arons slægt!
20 Pris Herren, alle I præster!
    Pris Herren, alle I, som kender ham!
21 Lovet være Herren, som bor på Zion,
    han som har sin bolig i Jerusalem.
Halleluja!
