Psalm 135

Psalm 135

Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise the name of the Lord;
    praise him, you servants of the Lord,
you who minister in the house of the Lord,
    in the courts of the house of our God.

Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
    sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant.
For the Lord has chosen Jacob to be his own,
    Israel to be his treasured possession.

I know that the Lord is great,
    that our Lord is greater than all gods.
The Lord does whatever pleases him,
    in the heavens and on the earth,
    in the seas and all their depths.
He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth;
    he sends lightning with the rain
    and brings out the wind from his storehouses.

He struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
    the firstborn of people and animals.
He sent his signs and wonders into your midst, Egypt,
    against Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 He struck down many nations
    and killed mighty kings—
11 Sihon king of the Amorites,
    Og king of Bashan,
    and all the kings of Canaan—
12 and he gave their land as an inheritance,
    an inheritance to his people Israel.

13 Your name, Lord, endures forever,
    your renown, Lord, through all generations.
14 For the Lord will vindicate his people
    and have compassion on his servants.

15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
    made by human hands.
16 They have mouths, but cannot speak,
    eyes, but cannot see.
17 They have ears, but cannot hear,
    nor is there breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them will be like them,
    and so will all who trust in them.

19 All you Israelites, praise the Lord;
    house of Aaron, praise the Lord;
20 house of Levi, praise the Lord;
    you who fear him, praise the Lord.
21 Praise be to the Lord from Zion,
    to him who dwells in Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord.

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!
