Jacob as His Treasure

Psalm 135

Halleluyah! Praise the Name of Adonai.
Give praise, O servants of Adonai
standing in the House of Adonai,
in the courts of the House of our God.
Praise Adonai, for Adonai is good.
Sing praises to His Name, for it is delightful.
For Adonai has chosen Jacob for Himself,
Israel as His treasured possession.[a]
For I have known that Adonai is great,
and that our Lord is above all gods.
Whatever Adonai pleases, He does,
in heaven and in earth,
in the seas and in all deeps.
He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth.
He makes lightning for the rain.
He brings wind out of His storehouses.

He struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
both man and beast.
He sent signs and wonders among you,
O Egypt, on Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 He struck down 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 gave their land as an inheritance,
an inheritance to His people Israel.

13 Adonai, Your Name endures forever,
Your renown, Adonai, from generation to generation.
14 For Adonai will vindicate His people,
and have compassion on His servants.
15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
the work of human hands.
16 They have mouths, but cannot speak,
eyes, but cannot see;
17 they have ears, but cannot hear,
nor is there any breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them will be like them—
so will all who keep trusting in them.

19 O house of Israel, bless Adonai!
O house of Aaron, bless Adonai!
20 O house of Levi, bless Adonai!
You who revere Adonai, bless Adonai!
21 Blessed be Adonai out of Zion,
who dwells in Jerusalem. Halleluyah!
