Psalm 135



Praise the name of the Lord.

Give praise, you servants of the Lordm

who stand in the house of the Lord,

in the courts of the house of our God.n

Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;

sing praise to his name, for it is delightful.o

For the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself,

Israel as his treasured possession.p

For I know that the Lord is great;

our Lord is greater than all gods.q

The Lord does whatever he pleases

in heaven and on earth,

in the seas and all the depths.r

He causes the clouds to rise from the ends of the earth.

He makes lightning for the rain

and brings the wind from his storehouses.s

He struck down the firstborn of Egypt,

both people and animals.t

He sent signs and wonders against you, Egypt,

against Pharaoh and all his officials.u

10 He struck down many nations

and slaughtered mighty kings:v

11 Sihon king of the Amorites,

Og king of Bashan,

and all the kings of Canaan.w

12 He gave their land as an inheritance,

an inheritance to his people Israel.x

13 Lord, your name endures forever,

your reputation, Lord,

through all generations.y

14 For the Lord will vindicate his people

and have compassion on his servants.z

15 The idols of the nations are of silver and gold,

made by human hands.aa

16 They have mouths but cannot speak,ab

eyes, but cannot see.

17 They have ears but cannot hear;

indeed, there is no breath in their mouths.ac

18 Those who make them are just like them,

as are all who trust in them.ad

19 House of Israel, bless the Lord!ae

House of Aaron, bless the Lord!af

20 House of Levi, bless the Lord!

You who revere the Lord, bless the Lord!ag

21 Blessed be the Lord from Zion;ah

he dwells in Jerusalem.ai



About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
