133 A Song of mAscents. Of David.
running down on the beard,
on the beard of Aaron,
running down on hthe collar of his robes!
which falls on kthe mountains of Zion!
For there the Lord lhas commanded the blessing,
134 A Song of mAscents.
1 Come, bless the Lord, all you mservants of the Lord,
and bless the Lord!
he who tmade heaven and earth!
135 uPraise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord,
give praise, O vservants of the Lord,
2 who nstand in the house of the Lord,
in wthe courts of the house of our God!
3 Praise the Lord, for xthe Lord is good;
4 For the Lord has zchosen Jacob for himself,
Israel as his aown possession.
5 For I know that bthe Lord is great,
and that our Lord is above all gods.
6 cWhatever the Lord pleases, he does,
in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and all deeps.
7 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.
8 He it was who gstruck down the firstborn of Egypt,
both of man and of beast;
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,
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.
they have eyes, but do not see;
nor is there any breath in their mouths.
so do all who trust in them.
19 sO house of Israel, bless the Lord!
O house of Aaron, 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!
Or dwell together
Or for he is beautiful
