Your Name, O Lord, Endures Forever

135 uPraise the Lord!

Praise the name of the Lord,

give praise, O vservants of the Lord,

who nstand in the house of the Lord,

in wthe courts of the house of our God!

Praise the Lord, for xthe Lord is good;

sing to his name, yfor it is pleasant!1

For the Lord has zchosen Jacob for himself,

Israel as his aown possession.

For I know that bthe Lord is great,

and that our Lord is above all gods.

cWhatever the Lord pleases, he does,

in heaven and on earth,

in the seas and all deeps.

dHe it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth,

who emakes lightnings for the rain

and brings forth the wind from his fstorehouses.

He it was who gstruck down the firstborn of Egypt,

both of man and of beast;

who in your midst, O Egypt,

sent hsigns and wonders

against Pharaoh and all his servants;

10  iwho struck down many nations

and killed mighty kings,

11  jSihon, king of the Amorites,

and kOg, king of Bashan,

and lall the kingdoms of Canaan,

12  and mgave their land as a heritage,

a heritage to his people Israel.

13  nYour name, O Lord, endures forever,

oyour renown,2 O Lord, throughout all ages.

14  pFor the Lord will vindicate his people

and qhave compassion on his servants.

15  rThe idols of the nations are silver and gold,

the work of human hands.

16  They have mouths, but do not speak;

they have eyes, but do not see;

17  they have ears, but do not hear,

nor is there any breath in their mouths.

18  Those who make them become like them,

so do all who trust in them.

19  sO house of Israel, bless the Lord!

O house of Aaron, bless the Lord!

20  O house of Levi, bless the Lord!

You who fear the Lord, bless the Lord!

21  Blessed be the Lord tfrom Zion,

he who udwells in Jerusalem!

vPraise the Lord!

About English Standard Version

The English Standard Version™ is founded on the conviction that the words of the Bible are the very words of God. And because the words themselves—not just the thoughts or ideas—are inspired by God, each word must be translated with the greatest precision and accuracy. As Jesus Himself stressed, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4).

This passion for God’s Word is the driving force behind the translation of the ESV™ Bible. The English Standard Version™ does not try to “improve” on the original in light of today’s culture or by using trendy language. Instead, the utmost care has been taken to express God’s Word in English that most closely captures the meaning of the original, with understandability, beauty, and impact.
